97(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013

(75% cabernet sauvignon, 16% merlot and 9% cabernet franc; the harvest here ended on October 13, about two weeks later than usual):  Brilliant ruby-red.  Urgent aromas of crushed boysenberry, wild herbs, licorice and spearmint are complemented by sexy oak tones.  Densely packed and electric, with great energy to the highly concentrated, pliant flavors of black fruits, cocoa powder and flowers.  Still quite youthfully backward, but the inexorable slowly mounting finish and big but noble tannins suggest a long and glorious evolution in bottle.  Owing to the small clusters, thick skins and concentration of tannins, this wine got a longer elevage than usual, with the bottling done at the end of November 2012.
