Vivid ruby. Mineral-tinged aromas of fresh black and blue fruits, candied flowers and olive, plus a hint of cola in the background. Sweet, tightly focused cassis and blueberry flavors have a refreshingly tangy edge and turn deeper and smokier with air. Impressively concentrated but possesses excellent energy thanks to a bright spine of minerality. Finishes sappy, focused and very long, with sneaky tannins and a lingering violet note.
Score: 93 points -- Vinous
