89 Points

Saturday, February 16, 2013 - From magnum. Double decanted 2 hours before serving and consumed over 3 hours. Full bodied, starts out with loads of black fruit, smoke and alcohol, then evolves to show more red fruited grenache character with some herbs and spice. A large amount of heat on the long finish that tamed slightly with air. Showed best the end of the night. Nice wine, but the alcohol is too noticeable to merit a 90+ score. 2nd bottle with consistent notes.
