92 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full red. Pretty, high-pitched aromas of raspberry, rose petal, Asian spices and musky underbrush. Supple, silky and nicely balanced, with an alluring sweetness to the intense red fruit flavors. Becomes spicier in the middle palate and shows excellent clarity. Really spreads out on the spicy, focused, very long finish. Green describes this as "wild fruit, not domesticated." (Jul/Aug '10) This, as always, is dark in every possible way. The pigmentation is such that it one cannot see though a full glass of this wine. The flavors are brimming with blackberry, currant, black cherry, cola and slate. The structure leans toward the powerful side with strong tannins providing heft and grip at the back of the wine. This is a substantial number every year and the 2008 packs a real punch.
