91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

(all French oak, 40% new):  Good bright red-ruby.  Aromas of blackberry, black raspberry, licorice and minerals.  Chewy, concentrated and classically dry, with a saline quality and subtle oak tones to the flavors of crushed blackberry, menthol and bitter chocolate.  A traditionally styled wine with lovely definition and depth and a firm tannic spine for aging.  With its back-end minerally lift, this saturates the entire mouth without leaving any impression of weight.  Should expand with a few years of additional bottle aging.
