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

Bright ruby-red.  Initially a bit youthfully stunted on the nose, and dominated by low-toned nutty, chocolatey oak, but revealed black fruits as it opened in the glass.  Then rich and firm-edged on the palate, with good density to the dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors complicated by licorice and herbs.  Finishes with chocolatey, oak-driven tannins and repeating suggestion of herbs.  I wanted a bit more sweetness of fruit.
