90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012
(from a 1982 planting, now virused; just 10% new oak): Good bright ruby-red. Aromas of blueberry, black cherry, menthol and herbs, with pungent minerality emerging with air. Sweet and moderately dense, with flavors of crushed black fruits, A&W root beer and brown sugar. Finishes with a fairly full dusting of tannins and nice length. This got an extra six months of barrel aging, which winemaker Foley says gave it more density.
