Stephen Tanzer's International Wine CellarFull bright ruby. Vibrant, pure aromas of cassis, blackberry, mocha, tar, bitter chocolate and violet. Round, rich and sweetly oaky; a large-scaled, mouthfilling wine with lovely fresh fruit and nicely restrained sweetness. Still youthfully tight and in need of time to develop more complexity. Finishes with big tongue- and toothdusting tannins.
Wine Spectator"Deliciously rich, smooth and polished. Deeply concentrated, with layers of currant, blackberry, mocha and vanilla. Beautifully focused and deftly balanced, the flavors run on and on. Best from 2004 through 2013. 2,164 cases made."
