93 points. Everything about this wine is deep, complex, and intense, beginning with the nose. The aroma greets you with sweet tones of vanilla and cream. Dark fruit preserves mingle with volcanic minerals, rose petals, and driftwood. There is a touch of dried bergamot, raspberry, and lavender with a very faint tint of olives and black tea with a spin in the glass. Very ripe fruit tones gracefully wash onto the palate, with exceptionally refined tones of dark chocolate, suede, and lavender flowers around the edges. The mid palate strikes a balance between being creamy and jammy, and beautiful dusty tannins lead into a delicious waxy, dark chocolate bar-like quality on the finish. This is a gorgeous wine with waves of complexity and subtlety constantly evolving. It’s big and plush, with perfect ripeness and a delicately soft velvety quality. This is truly an experience for the senses and a wine that captures both the attention of the palate and the mind. A few more of these rare gems may still be on the market somewhere.

I've drank a lot of wine over the course of about 8 months. I am by no means an expert taster. I can tell you one thing, this was a very good wine. You get all it's real flavors when it hits the back of your tongue. A really good taste, great fruit flavors, bought a bottle and saving it for a special occasion.
