"... elegance as well as unreal concentration. Classic lead pencil, cassis, kirsch, cedar, and spice characteristics are abundant in both the nose and full-bodied flavors ..."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 95
"Full medium ruby. Aromas of currant, black cherry, licorice, minerals and flowers. Thick, sweet and deep; ... boasts sneaky intensity and wonderful persistence ..."
Wine Spectator (WS): 95
"A racy, classy, silky wine. Inky-ruby color. Black cherry, mineral and wet earth aromas. Medium-bodied, with very silky tannins and a long, superfine finish. Has always been excellent."
