89 pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/June 2011
Dark purple. A perfumed, nuanced nose displays blackcurrant, blueberry and graphite, with hints of olive and tobacco. Very syrah! Sweet and penetrating, enriched by sweet dark berry compote, licorice and candied violet flavors and a touch of cracked pepper. Quite complex, especially for the price, with very good finishing thrust and suave florality.
