93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July 2013

Deep ruby.  Sexy, floral dark berry scents are complemented by deeper notes of licorice and cola.  Offers sharply focused, concentrated black and blue fruit flavors brightened by suggestions of candied rose and blood orange.  Highly complex Beaujolais with excellent finishing clarity, power and floral persistence.  One of the most intriguing wines of the 2011 vintage, with the depth and structure to age.
