International Wine CellarRating: 91/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 128, September/October 2006 ($60) Ruby-red. Exotic, pungent aromas of redcurrant, rhubarb, roasted coffee, licorice and dark chocolate. Remarkably lively and fresh, with zesty redcurrant and cherry flavors showing serious depth and power. This really explodes with ripe but focused red fruit flavors that expand through a spicy, iron- and graphite-tinged finish that won't quit. Serious and built for cellaring.
