  • International Wine Cellar
    Rating: 83/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 104, September/October 2002 Bright ruby-red. Very oaky nose dominated by whiskey and exotic spices, along with a note of dill. Big and sweet on the palate, with spicy oak overshadowing the fruit. Has texture, but the flavor is overwhelmingly from wood. Strong whiskey tones carry through on the drying finish.
