Wine Spectator, April 2012

Nothing is reined in here with lots of roasted apple wood and mesquite aromas that lead to dark plush blackberry and plum paste notes. Rich and broad but well-detailed this pounds its chest a bit but it's impressively...

Tight, needs effort to bring up the earthy, smoke filled perfume, with its coffee bean and blackberry notes. Soft, and polished, there is a dryness in the finish that stops the wine from scoring higher. 91...
