Saturated ruby. Bright, mineral-accented blackberry, blueberry and violet scents take on a spicy topnote with air. Concentrated red and dark berry and floral pastille flavors show excellent focus and energetic drive thanks to a core of smoky minerality. Finishes very long and smooth, with persistent dark berry and floral qualities, youthfully taut tannins and lingering minerality.
Score: 93 points -- Josh Raynolds, Vinous, May 2019 (2016 vintage)
