IWC 93
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, October 2009
($135; 100% mataro) Glass-staining ruby. Powerful scents of blackcurrant dark cherry olive tapenade and incense with a musky herbal undertone. Broad palate-staining dark berry compote flavors are framed by velvety tannins... ($135; 100% mataro) Glass-staining ruby. Powerful scents of blackcurrant dark cherry olive tapenade and incense with a musky herbal undertone. Broad palate-staining dark berry compote flavors are framed by velvety tannins and pick up notes of licorice and bitter chocolate with air. Pretty wild stuff boasting excellent concentration and finishing sweetness. There are plenty of tannins here but the fruit seems to suck them up. Give this another four or five years in the cellar. 93(+?)

The 2006 The Pict is 100% Mataro (Mourvedre) aged in 100% new French oak for 24 months. The fruit was sourced from one section of a vineyard planted in 1927. Purple-colored it offers up an aromatic array of smoky oak... The 2006 The Pict is 100% Mataro (Mourvedre) aged in 100% new French oak for 24 months. The fruit was sourced from one section of a vineyard planted in 1927. Purple-colored it offers up an aromatic array of smoky oak forest floor black truffle blueberry and blackberry jam. On the palate it reveals a brawny masculine personality with some austerity that should round out with a few years of additional bottle age. It should offer prime drinking from 2013 to 2026. -Jay Miller
