92 Points | International Wine Cellar , July 2013

Vivid ruby.  A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes dark berries, cherry pit, smoky minerals and violet, plus a bright mineral overtone.  Penetrating, concentrated blackberry and bitter cherry flavors show very good energy and focus, with a sweet floral pastille quality coming up with air.  Finishes on a sweet note, with sneaky tannins and excellent persistence.
