WINE SPECTATOR – 90 pts – 31 JAN 2011

Juicy and long, with lots of plum saude, fig paste and spice bread flavors carried by anise and graphite notes. Shows a twinge of the vintage’s raisined edge, but stays focused and fresh enough. Asolid effort for the vintage. To be released spring 2011. Best from 2012 through 2018. 4700cs made. $50
