ROBERT PARKER: 89/100 Drink: 2012 - 2025
If it were not for some prominent tannins in the finish, this wine would merit an outstanding score. If the tannins sweeten, it will merit a higher rating. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet black cherry, scorched earth, and camphor notes, a sweet, rich mid-palate, medium to full body, and excellent purity as well as depth. The tannins kick in in the finish, but there is a lot going on here in a positive sense. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.
