Vinous Review: 91 points
"Bright violet. An intensely perfumed nose offers smoke-accented red and black currant and cherry pit scents, along with a minerally note that builds in the glass. Bitter cherry, cassis and spicecake flavors show very good clarity and become sweeter with air. The mineral quality repeats strongly on a long, sappy, dark-berry-dominated finish shaped by fine-grained tannins."
