Bright purple. Intense, mineral-accented aromas of black and blue fruits and cola, with a sexy floral topnote. Sappy, palate-staining blackberry and bitter cherry flavors show superb depth and energy, with a spine of juicy acidity adding lift and structure. Rich but lively, with excellent finishing clarity and slow-mounting tannins. For such a powerful wine there's a lithe character here, which I've come to expect from Balthazar's wines over the years.
