Critic Reviews:
"Vivid magenta. Ripe red berry and cherry scents, along with building suggestions of garrigue, exotic spices and musky earth. Rich yet lively in character, offering palate-staining black raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that turn sweeter as the wine opens up. Plays power off finesse with a steady hand, and finishes impressively long and spicy, with a suave floral nuance and steadily mounting tannins." 93/100 ( vinous.com)
