Subtle and complex aromas of blackberry, lightly toasted oak and licorice. Full-bodied, with layers of ripe fruit and velvety tannins. Long aftertaste. Gorgeous. Best after 2010. (JS)
*Editors' Choice* This wine had loads of toast, coffee bean, moist earth, spice and stable. There's fudge and spiced chocolate in the mouth with a pinch of sour cherry over a black velvety finish. A solid, broad wine for guaranteed gratification but no hidden surprises.
Deep red. Fairly primary aromas of dark berries, flowers and exotic spices. Juicy and tightly wound; not especially fleshy but possesses good density. Reminded me of an old-style Bordeaux with its dried fruit flavors complicated by leather, tobacco, graphite and pepper. Nicely lifted by mineral and floral elements. A bit musclebound today, with firm acids giving the finish a bracing quality. This one needs at least four or five years of aging. 90+ (ST)
