Let's face it, the raw power of this wine is impressive. At 15.5% it cannot claim to pull punches; in fact, it's jam-packed with balsam and cedar aromas bolstered by dark, seductive fruit and marzipan flavors. A true knife-and-fork wine that finishes with licorice so potent it's reminiscent of Sanmbuca. Drink through 2010.
