DESCRIPTION: Deep amber with a copper-orange cast. Moderately full-bodied. Reminiscent of pralines, mocha, dried apricot and minerals. Bold, rich texture. Very dry and assertive on the palate. Nutty, spicy components dominate soft fruit notes. Amid all the power lies a fascinating element of zesty, bright succulence. Beautifully structured, this is a sensual delight. SCORE: 96 TASTING LOCATION: Tasted under ideal conditions at the Beverage Testing Institute Inc., in Chicago.
