Expert Reviews

91 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2013

(15.3% alcohol):  Good bright, deep red.  Black raspberry and dark chocolate on the nose.  Sweet, dense and creamy on the palate, with plush flavors of kirsch, licorice and bitter chocolate.  The broad finish features substantial tannins and a touch of warmth.  This big boy is almost too much of a good thing; it currently shows less refinement than some recent vintages.
