Vinous – 95
Opaque ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented dark berries, cherry preserves, bacon and licorice on the expansive nose. Offers lush and appealingly sweet black raspberry, blueberry, cola and allspice flavors that show excellent depth and pick up a subtle floral accent with aeration. Displays excellent clarity and mineral thrust on the wonderfully persistent finish, which features an intense blue fruit character and gently firming tannins.
