The wine is rated a massive 95pointer Winespectator:
Dark ruby red color. Very rich and concentrated on the nose, with masses of plum, toasty oak and blackberry. Full-bodied, with dense fruit and velvety tannins. Very, very fruity. Needs time to open.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Best after 2009. 1,025 cases made.
The nose is full of cherry, cassis and plums. At age 11, the wine still has some distance to go but probably near it's peak as the balance of fruit/acid were right. Some racy tannin in the mid palate with reduced fruit. Long finish and gives a good lift at end palate. Superb with pasta as the wine is able to cut thru. 95 pointer? dun think so but its definitely a solid 90-92pointer.
