($88) Impressively deep red. Knockout nose combines currant, black cherry, marzipan, menthol, tar, graphite and licorice. The palate offers an uncanny combination of sweetness and penetrating power, with brisk acidity framing and lifting the fine-grained flavors of black fruits, menthol and spices. The very long, slowly mounting finish conveys an impression of energy and great finesse, not to mention the structure for a graceful evolution in bottle. Lay this one down.
