Tanzer"Deep, bright red. Sappy aromas of kirsch, mocha, tobacco, licorice and spicy, roasted oak. Sweet and thick but with lovely vibrancy and delineation. This has remarkably penetrating fruit and terrific grip. Finishes strong and long; the wine's firm tannins will require a good six or seven years of additional bottle aging. But promises to be one of the stars of the vintage."
