94(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2013

(this spent 31 months in oak):  Medium red color seemed to deepen with aeration.  Redcurrant, plum, spices and earth on the nose, complicated by grilled herbs and exotic flowers.  Plush, sexy and deep, with layered flavors of strawberry, marzipan and dried flowers.  Offers an exciting combination of breadth with fresh acidity.  The very long finish features a wave of dusty ripe tannins.  From a vineyard dating back to 1937, with an average vine age of 65 years, according to Conterno.  The deepest of these 2009s.
