International Wine CellarSaturated bright ruby. Black raspberry, sandalwood, and a slightly medicinal suggestion of Dr. Pepper on the superripe nose. Thick, deep and mouthfilling; intriguing flavors of black fruits, tobacco, leather and iron. Finishes with huge, toothcoating tannins that will require substantial bottle aging. An outsized wine that may ultimately merit a higher score.

Wine SpectatorSpicy, fruity aromatics lead to a rich and supple wine with pretty currant, anise, cherry and blackberry flavors. Firms up on the finish, where a touch of chocolate emerges. Drink now through 2009.
