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

Bright red-ruby.  Tighter and less expressive on the nose today than the cabernet sauvignon, hinting at cassis and licorice pastille.  Juicy, supple and surprisingly easygoing on the palate, if a bit less chewy than the cabernet.  In a distinctly elegant style, not big or superconcentrated but seamless, generous and already approachable.  Finishes with smooth, sweet tannins and noteworthy energy and length.
