Wine Spectator Notes
Plush and smoky, with loads of flesh carrying black olive, fig, tobacco, currant and game notes. The broad, powerful finish shows a very roasted quality, with dark, smoky bacon and fig notes and an exotic hint of spice. This is a huge wine that only shows bits of what it will eventually offer. Best from 2010 through 2030.
Wine Advocate Notes
Dee p, saturated ruby. Knockout nose combines black fruits, gunflint, iron, licorice and brown spices. Like liquid velvet in the mouth, with wild flavors of blackberry, black cherry, roast coffee, licorice and gunflint. Extremely dense and concentrated, finishing with great aromatic persistence.
