TASTING NOTES

This wine boasts both an impressive opaque purple color and bouquet of creme de cassis, roasted coffee, melted chocolate, toasty oak, licorice, and creosote. It is full-bodied, thick, and rich, with brooding but well-integrated tannin under all the flesh and density. 

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate.

Very good dark ruby-red for its age. Dark-verging-on-inky on the nose, with its black raspberry, cassis and boysenberry aromas lifted by a violet top note. Then surprisingly velvety and suave on the palate, revealing a subtle claret-like sweetness and lovely inner-mouth perfume and breadth. The wine's purple fruit flavors are complicated by graphite minerality. Finishes very long and firm-edged, with substantial well-managed tannins. This shapely midweight may yet expand further in bottle. 

Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.

A big, rich, intensely flavored wine with complex flavors and ripe tannins. The core of currant, kirsch, black cherry, coffee and anise is accented by beefy, leathery nuances and chewy tannins. Needs time. 

James Laube, Wine Spectator.
