RATINGS

90-92The Wine Advocate

..austere, four-square wine with flavors of minerals, stones and dark berries. Oily-textured and chewy, this highly-concentrated wine possesses an extremely long finish and a super-structured core. It will be at its best between 2002-2010.

A beautiful black fruit and ripe earth nose with tobacco and cedar hints precedes intense, pure, slightly burly flavors supported by big, firm but ripe tannins and lovely length plus just a trace of finishing astringency...
