"90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2011
Bright purple. Smoky, oak-spiced aromas of blackberry, blueberry and licorice, with a hint of pungent flowers. Broad and fleshy on entry, then firmer in the middle, with very good depth to its dark fruit and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes with solid tannic grip and very good spicy persistence. This wine benefits from decanting."
