Tanzer 91 pts Deep red-ruby. Roasted raspberry and pepper on the nose; fruitier than the Hermitage. Elegantly styled and fruity, with sweet flavors of redcurrant, raspberry, bacon fat, licorice, leather and woodsmoke. Showing nicely today, but this also has the backbone to develop over the next decade or so. Finishes long and juicy, with tannins perfectly supported by the wine's mid-palate material.
