Nice dark purple color. Aromas range from resiny, to pruny, to something like anise. Very pleasing initial palate. There is some fruit here--blackberry as much as anything--but it doesn't take over. Some dusty earthiness. Nice acid tartness. Firm supporting tannin. US$19.99 at Costco last summer.
Vintage rating : 93E Predicted year : 2013+ (Should reach maximum ageing potential at around 2013, but will keep great for another 10 plus years). RP - 91pts. Upon tasting, I was surprised to see that it was of an intense ruby colour and still quite dark considering the almost 10 years in the bottle. This hints that it could be further aged for a while without loosing it's flavour such as; on the nose, it still had very ripe red fruits - strawberry and cherry, in the mouth the tannins still offer a great kick with spices and black pepper. Again in the mouth, the ripe red fruits reveal to be more akin to plums. The balance is quite superb with acidity that rounds things off with the spices and tannins.
Aged 30 months in Oak.
Aged 36 months in Bottle.
