International Wine CellarRating: 91-94 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 96, May/June 2001 Ruby to the rim. Explosive aromas of blackberry, black raspberry, violet and bitter chocolate. Great sappy sweetness in the mouth: flavors of crushed and crystallized dark berries. Very long, powerful finish features strong but lush tannins. An uncanny combination of sweetness and structure.
