Tasted August 19, 2006 at an offline. Opened and served immediately in a Spiegelau Authentis Magnum glass. Dark purple color in the glass, clear hue throughout. Nose of expresso, dark chocolate and pepper. Flavors of dark berries, plums and spice. Medium acidity and tannins. Full bodied. I thought the alcohol was a little hot. If you don’t agree then add back a point to the rating. Drink over the medium term, say 5-6 years. Based on the current retail price of $55.00 a bottle I’d say the value is acceptable.
