Expert Reviews

90-92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1999

Very deep purple-ruby. Perfumed, ripe aromas of blackberry and vanilla. High-pitched but thick in the mouth, with a sweet flavor of blackberry syrup and firm underlying backbone. Finishes with very strong dark berry fruit and big, tongue-coating tannins.
