IWC 94
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, May 2007
(aging in 80% new Taransaud and Sylvain barrels) Deep bright ruby-red. Highly complex aromas of raspberry blackberry boysenberry mocha minerals tobacco and sexy smoky oak. Broad and dense but airy with lovely mineral lift... (aging in 80% new Taransaud and Sylvain barrels) Deep bright ruby-red. Highly complex aromas of raspberry blackberry boysenberry mocha minerals tobacco and sexy smoky oak. Broad and dense but airy with lovely mineral lift to the berry and chocolate flavors. This rather powerful and highly promising wine finishes with serious chewy tannins and excellent length. Winemaker Gary Brookman noted that the team here dropped crop three times but still brought in 13 tons of fruit for 3 acres; the previous high had been just over 8! Brookman believes that 2005 combines the richness and opulence of vintages like 2004 and 2002 with the classic character and backbone of 2003 and 2001.
