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

(aged in 50% new oak):  Good bright ruby.  Captivating aromas and flavors of blackberry, blueberry, licorice, herbs and mocha oak, plus a hint of fig.  Densely packed, fresh and intense, offering very good extract and life in the mouth.  Finishes even and long, with supple, building tannins, sweet fruit and a note of coffee oak.  Classy and satisfying for the price.
