91(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2014

Good full ruby.  Expressive aromas of raspberry, strawberry, Asian spices and minerals.  Youthfully tight and dry, but already shows noteworthy focus and lift to the youthfully medicinal cherry and floral flavors.  This could use a little more generosity on the long finish, but it's an outstanding wine of noteworthy purity.
