91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2013

Saturated, deep ruby-red.  Sexy, syrah-like aromas of raspberry, blackberry, blueberry and game.  Dense, silky and sweet, with harmonious acidity giving clarity to the fine-grained dark berry, violet and game flavors.  With aeration, redder fruits emerged.  Finishes long and perfumed, with tannins dusting the front teeth.  Already boasts superb appeal, but this has the constitution and balance to evolve gracefully in bottle.
