Brilliant ruby. Energetic, mineral-tinged red berry and floral pastille aromas show excellent clarity and building spiciness. Silky, sweet and powerful in the mouth, offering raspberry liqueur and lavender flavors that steadily become deeper with air. Fine-grained tannins give gentle grip to the impressively long, penetrating finish, which strongly echoes the floral and red berry notes. In a distinctly suave style, with no rough edges. 92-94 points. – Josh Raynolds, Vinous, April 2016.
