International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 133

($150) Inky violet. Outrageously scented nose combines pungent floral, spice and mineral tones with kirsch, blackcurrant and blueberry aromas. Surprisingly zesty in the mouth, with vibrant red, black and blue fruit flavors sharpened by peppery minerality and sweetened by hints of floral pastille and mocha. There's energy and cut here that reminded me of cabernet more than shiraz. The incisive finish features a dark berry skin tone and a bright jolt of cracked pepper. Can you call it a finish when it doesn't stop? Twelftree says that his goal here was to make a 15-to-20-year wine.

Monday, April 25, 2011 - We decided to pop one of these to have with Easter dinner. Decanted for three hours. The nose was very nicely balanced with a blend of blackberries, sweet plum, and five spice powder. It was truly mouth coating without being overly sweet. Very strong flavors of blackberry and blueberries with the lightest hint of oak seamlessly running through from start to finish. The tannins really provided a perfect offset for the velvety sweetness and finish. It was hard to believe this was a 16% wine. Michael really has the touch. Superb.

This can't be called a red wine anymore - it was black! The aroma was full of dark berries, plum, coffee, chocolate and peppery spice. On the palate it all mixed together to a full bodied, concentrated powerful wine with a superb finish.

Excellent - one of the best reds I have ever tasted
