Suave, velvety and plump, with noteworthy density and an exotic spice character to go with the smoked meats. Round, sweet and fat with extract; seamless and seductive...92-94. Stephen Tanzer; International Wine Cellar
A very ripe nose features aromas of mocha, chocolate, spiced plum and warm earth and despite the ripeness of the nose, the flavors remains fresh and refined with good punch and power on the somewhat animale finish. This is a mildly awkward wine today that hasn't quite found its center though it certainly has solid raw materials. Tasted: Apr 01, 2007 Score: 90-94 Drink: 2017+ Issue 26; Allen Meadows; Burghound
