Reviews 93 points Vinous "Inky ruby. A vibrant, highly perfumed bouquet evokes primary back and blue fruits, candied violet, smoked meat, olive and Indian spices. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that unfurl slowly and become sweeter with aeration. Blends power and finesse with a deft hand and finishes very long and sappy, displaying resonating berry character and smooth, even tannins that come on late. (JR)"
