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

(13.9% alcohol):  Bright ruby-red.  Wild, musky aromas of black cherry, crushed blackberry, shoe polish, spices, chocolate and licorice pastille, with a whiff of meaty redution:  very Old World.  Then fat, ripe and sweet in the mouth, with a sexy leesy complexity to the deep flavors of blackberry, mocha, chocolate, herbs and licorice.  Creamy, mouthcoating wine with substantial ripe tannins and lingering notes of cassis, licorice and herbs.  Legendary Pomerol winemaker Jean-Claude Berrouet, who made more than 40 vintages at Chateau Petrus, is now involved at Tapiz.  An extraordinary value.
