...Sweet superripe aromas of raspberry plum black cherry tobacco toffee and game. Like liquid velvet in the mouth: sweet voluptuous seamless. Palate-staining flavors of black cherry chocolate and smoky oak. Finishes with chewy toothfurring tannins and great persistence... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

A stunning red. Dark and inky with masses of coffee blackberry cherry and wild flower aromas. Full-bodied and tannic with loads of fruit and tons of oak on the long long finish. Perhaps a bit too much new wood on the finish? Best after 2003. (JS) Wine Spectator.
