89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2014

Full, bright ruby-red.  Porty yet high-pitched aromas of blackberry, kirsch, blueberry and violet are complicated by balsamic and black olive nuances.  Dense, thick and superripe but still with noteworthy clarity to its dark fruit and fresh fig flavors.  A nutty oak element is leavened by insinuating acidity.  Ultimately displays a very attractive sugar/acid balance and finishes with good lift.
