92 points -- The old vine cuvee... exhibits great purity, but it is far more backward than its two siblings. This deep plum/purple-colored effort offers a smorgasbord of aromas, including lavender, ground pepper, currants, cherries, and spice box. The firmness, tannic clout, dense, expansive flavors, and rich, powerful finish are impressive, but patience is warranted.
