Bright ruby-red. Sexy, oak-spiced cherry and dark berries on the nose, along with hints of vanilla and woodsmoke. Sappy and focused on the palate, offering concentrated cherry, cassis and rose pastille flavors that become deeper and sweeter on the back half. Concentrated yet lively, finishing with impressive, fruit-driven tenacity and supple framing tannins.
Score: 92 points -- Vinous
