Vinous - 94 points
Glass-staining ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh blackberry and boysenberry, pungent flowers and smoky minerals. Intense, palate-staining black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors are complicated by powerful spice and mineral notes that gain strength with air. Closes on a youthfully tannic note, showing excellent delineation, strong, mineral-driven persistence and lingering floral character.
