Stephen Tanzer's IWC, May 2012 90pts:
Vivid red. Smoke- and spice-accented aromas of cherry, redcurrant, violet and licorice, with a hint of cracked pepper emerging with air. Spicy and focused, with a gently chewy texture to the sappy red and dark berry flavors. Shows a refreshingly bitter nuance on the finish, which features sweet red fruits and flowers. This wine is already drinking nicely.
Gamey notes dance with crushed free berries, herbs, cola, leather and floral hints. The palate shows off the wine's stuffing with chewy tannins, respectable acidity and lingering flavors of cranberry and cassis.
