SWS 95 IWC 90 - Wine Spectator 95 Points A fabulous nose of cassis and berries, with hints of licorice. Full-bodied and lightly sweet, with supersexy tannins and a long, long finish. Very classy. Superb for Delaforce. Best after 2012. 4,500 cases made.-JS International Wine Cellar 90 Points Bright saturated ruby. Captivating aromas of blackberry, kirsch, licorice and candied violet. Dense, concentrated and sweet, with primary dark fruit flavors enlivened by firm but ripe acidity. Complicating notes of pepper and herbs. Very nicely delineated, fine-grained wine, finishing with broad tannins. read more...I'd give this a good ten years in the cellar. (hide)
