International Wine Cellar(2005 Vintage) Rating: 93-96 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 131, March/April 2007 Bright red-ruby. Wild, briary red berries, mocha and licorice on the nose, accented by heady spices and herbs. Sweet, suave and pungent in the mouth, with a terrific peppery lift to the dense, palate-dusting flavors. Finishes broad and rather airy, with superb lift and perfume.
