88(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2014

Deep ruby.  A heavy dose of torrefaction (cocoa, coffee, smoke) dominates raspberry and blackcurrant aromas.  Dense and suave in the mouth, offering fleshy dark fruit flavors that gain weight and intensity with air.  The coffee, cocoa and sweet spice notes echo strongly on the long, smooth finish.  I'd forget about this in the cellar for five years and hope that the fruit holds up.
