Many wines are scored on a 50- to 100-point scale. This one deserves to be measured on the Richter scale. It's a booming, full-bodied, high-alcohol red wine that fully lives up to its name. But under the big blackberry fruit, there's a wine with a supple, almost creamy texture. There are nuances of herbs, chocolate and cassis, and the finish is long and satisfying. For those with patience, the wine has the backbone to age well for many years.
