Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Has refinement with the plum skin notes imbedded into the core allowing more succulent cherry and cassis to fan out on the anise-tinged finish where a nice minerally thread knits it all. Tasted non-blind.-J.M.

Light to medium translucent purple. Elegant nose characterized by dried cherry and cranberry notes with secondary aromas of leather and tar. The palate is more generous than the nose with similar fruit components infused with tapenade camphor cedar spice and lead pencil. The angular tannins take on a powdery aspect on the lingering medium-full finish. A pleasing and elegant effort that can be enjoyed on release and through 2029. About 3000 cases produced.
