2004 De Toren Fusion V
"This features a good, solid beam of raspberry and fig fruit, along with fig, mocha and cocoa notes. Nice length, with a vibrant minerally spine on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2009. 300 cases imported."
"Full red-ruby. Vibrant aromas of blackcurrant, minerals, bitter chocolate and licorice. Supple, suave and impressively concentrated, but far more backward than the Z owing to its higher percentage of cabernet sauvignon (55%, vs. 34%). Densely packed and minerally, in the understated style of a traditionally made Bordeaux. Very long and subtle on the back end. Needs at least five or six years of aging." -91 Points - Stephen Tanzer - International Wine Cellar
