92 Points

Wednesday, February 18, 2009 - Opened for the sake of "palate education," this was decanted for about three hours or so. Aromas of dusty red fruit, cassis, currants and vanilla. Dense, with immense structure and tannin, and flavors of cassis and black fruit. Spicy oak and black fruit tones dominate the seemingly endless finish. For all its size and structure, it is still a well balanced wine. If I had just a couple of these, I would hold off another 8-10 years. 92-93 now.
