Review from original list creator: "Lots of sweet cocoa and carob greet the nose along with a crisp arugula edge to the dark, slightly dried plum and boysenberry fruit. Has some vanilla, cinnamon and tobacco top notes. This has lovely focus as it enters the mouth, with youthfully dry tannins adding cut to the palate. The fruit is bright and fairly complex while not being sweet, with attractive vanilla, tobacco, cedar and dried spice accent notes. Some tea and Mexican chocolate notes emerge on the moderately long finish, which does show a whisper of heat but is nicely balanced in a fairly classical style. This has a lot going for it. 90pts" by 89065Gregory Dal Piaz
