Vivid ruby. Spice-accented blackberry and pungent flowers on the highly fragrant nose. Supple dark berry liqueur and lavender pastille flavors are lifted and sharpened by a peppery nuance and a hint of smoky minerals. Puts on weight with air and closes on an appealingly sweet note, displaying strong persistence and smooth, even tannins.
Score: 90 points -- Josh Raynolds, Vinous, Mar 2016
