Publication Score Comments
Vinous 93 (fermented and aged in new French oak barrels for 17 months) Inky ruby. Deep-pitched, spice-accented dark berry and licorice aromas are lifted by a lively floral nuance. Supple and expansive in the mouth, offering densely packed blackberry, bitter chocolate and floral pastille flavors plus hints of spicecake and vanilla. The impressively long, seamless, dark-fruit-driven finish features fine-grained tannins and an echo of candied flowers.
