(2002 Vintage) Bright ruby-red. Explosive, musky nose combines cherry, blackberry, cassis, minerals, roasted herbs, spice cake and licorice. Hugely dense and sweet, with exceptional depth of flavor. Boasts outstanding stuffing and a marvelously long, sweet aftertaste.
Wine Advocate(2004 Vintage) Rating: (91-93) - As reviewed in Wine Advocate # 162 on Dec-05
Wine Spectator(2013 Vintage) This potent red is loaded with personality, featuring aromas of smoky black raspberry and licorice that open to complex, dense flavors of dried cherry, cracked pepper beef and grilled herb. The tannins are big and framed by loamy mineral details.
