Bright violet. Aromas of ripe, spice-accented black and blue fruits and licorice are sharpened by a peppery flourish. Smooth and appealingly sweet, offering juicy blackberry and cassis flavors that firm up slowly on the back half. Finishes on a gently tannic note, displaying lingering blue fruit and spice notes.
Score: 90 points -- Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 2018
