Expert Reviews

88? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

(5.2 g/l total acidity; 12.9% alcohol):  Very deep ruby-red with an amber rim.  Evolved nose hints at ripe black cherry, underbrush, leather and licorice.  Sweet and soft on the palate, with ripe red cherry, tar and sweet spice flavors.  Lovely spicy finish hints at truffle and mushroom.  Easy-to-drink and smoothly tannic, but with a trace of dilution in the mid-palate that makes it slightly disappointing in the context of the vintage.
