Expert Reviews

93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2010

Good red-ruby. Wild aromas of currant, game, earth and mothballs, with a bit of leathery funk. Highly concentrated and very ripe, with a slightly chunky texture and a distinctly chewy quality. But this also boasts sweet fruit and lovely violet lift. Finishes with substantial, building tannins and plenty of thrust.
