93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013

(includes 4% carignane; 15.4% alcohol and 3.52 pH):  Bright purple.  Highly perfumed, spice-accented dark berry and incense aromas show impressive clarity and energy.  Smooth and seamless on the palate, offering vibrant blackberry preserve and cherry-vanilla flavors and notes of candied flowers and allspice.  Finishes with alluring sweetness and excellent length, leaving smoke and floral notes behind.  These vines were reportedly planted in 1934.
