Inky purple. Explosive aromas of candied dark berries, incense, violet and patchouli, with woodsmoke, olive and Asian spice nuances adding complexity. Lush, palate-coating black and blue fruit compote flavors are energized by bright spice and mineral notes. Picks up candied violet and licorice notes on the sweet, impressively long finish, which is given grip by late-arriving tannins. With its suave marriage of power and energy, this is built for the long haul. There's no way I'd have guessed that this wine clocked in at 15.2% alcohol save for its fruit intensity. I had the chance to revisit the outstanding 2008 Lillian and was pleasantly surprised by how delicious it is showing right now. (JR)
Meaty, scented, creamy - lovely judgement of fruit, spice and oak. Silky, refreshing, peppery. Very impressive. 18/20 points. (RH)
