93 Points

Bright magenta. Powerful blackberry, cherry, licorice and pungent floral aromas show very good, spicy lift and clarity. Chewy, concentrated and gently sweet, offering palate-staining dark berry, violet pastille and savory herb flavors that are given spice cut by a white pepper nuance. Displays excellent definition and spicy thrust on the long, chewy finish, which features dusty tannins and a sexy floral note. (raised in 30% new French oak).
