92 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2012
(16.3% alcohol): Glass-staining ruby. Heady, exotically perfumed bouquet of dark fruit liqueur, incense and candied flowers, with notes of vanilla, clove and cocoa emerging with air. Lush and deeply pitched but shockingly energetic, offering intense blackberry and cherry-vanilla flavors and strong spicy lift. Closes on a sappy note, with excellent clarity and floral-dominated persistence. Nothing at all shy about this wine, but nothing vulgar, either.
