96(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2014

Bright, saturated dark ruby.  Spectacularly multifaceted nose combines high-pitched medicinal cherry, briary black raspberry, pungent menthol, dried herbs, incense, Indian spices and a whiff of passion fruit.  Boasts great creamy depth and vinosity to its black raspberry and licorice flavors, with huge sweetness buffered by spicy minerality.  The note of passion fruit carries through on the palate.  Really reverberates on the back end, finishing with powerful tannins and a rising whiplash of flavor.  This got better and better with extended aeration, with the tannins making it obvious that it will be extremely long-lived.
