93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March 2013

(a blend of cabernet sauvignon, syrah and carmenere, with a bit of petit verdot):  Inky ruby.  The nose displays an array of exotic floral- and spice-accented dark fruit scents and a wild note of apricot.  Deep, sweet and expansive, offering intense blackberry and boysenberry flavors that pick up a spicy nuance with air.  Has the depth to reward aging but it also drinks very nicely today, especially with some aeration.
