International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88($50) Bright violet color. Bitter cherry, tobacco, iodine and graphite on the nose, plus a hint of fresh rose. Tightly structured, even wound up, the dark berry, rhubarb and cherry flavors firmed by bright acids and crisp tannins. The most backward and serious of this set of 2004 releases, but has the depth to repay cellaring.Author: Josh RaynoldsIssue: May/June 2006
Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Firm in texture, bursting with blueberry and dark plum fruit against racy acidity, which keeps everything zinging along. The fruit persists admirably as the finish comes together in deft balance, the refined tannins receding into the background.Author: Harvey Steiman
