Expert Reviews

87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998

Opaque black-purple color. Pungent aromas of blackberry, violet, iodine, molasses and faint game; ripeness just short of raisiny. Great concentration and enveloping texture; juicy blackberry fruit offers terrific depth of flavor. Tannins are strong but suave and even. Very long on the aftertaste.
