International Wine Cellar(2004 Vintage) Rating: 92/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 132, May/June 2007 ($85) Good medium ruby. Captivating, expressive nose offers plum, currant, tobacco, chocolate, mocha and meat, with a liqueur-like roasted berry note and a suggestion of sake. Then densely packed and tensile, with juicy acids keeping the wine youthfully firm. Finishes with chewy but sweet tannins and lovely length, with the acidity extending the fruit.
