Vinous – 96
Inky violet. Powerful black and blue fruit preserve, violet, olive and exotic spice aromas, along with smoky mineral and black pepper flourishes. Juicy and deeply concentrated, offering bitter cherry, blackcurrant, floral pastille and fruitcake flavors that become livelier with aeration. Shows sharp definition and spicy thrust on an impressively long, chewy finish that’s framed by steadily building tannins.
Anticipated maturity: 2028-2039
