Vinous – 92
Vivid ruby. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, cherry compote, vanilla and incense, with a mineral quality adding vibrancy. Sappy, seamless and broad on entry, then tightens up slowly in the middle, offering sweet blackberry and floral pastille flavors and a suggestion of mocha. Lingers with impressive tenacity on the fruit-driven finish, which is framed by fine-grained tannins that come up late.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2023
