88? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2012
Dark ruby. Overripe aromas of cassis, black cherries macerated in alcohol, raisins, mocha, underbrush, and brown spices on the explosive nose. Then very dense, creamy and almost sweet, with decadent flavors similar to the aromas. Finishes with good length and slightly edgy tannins, but could use more refinement for all its upfront, chunky ripe fruit appeal. This is not a style of wine I enjoy, as I found its low acidity, overripe fruit and high alcohol fatiguing. But those who favor opulent, fleshy wines will like it a lot more.
