“I really like the blend of Old and New World qualities here.”
Vinous • 93 / 100
"Bright magenta color. An explosively perfumed, mineral-tinged bouquet displays fresh raspberry, cherry, licorice pastille and smoked meat scents. An exotic nuance makes an appearance with air. Stains the palate with sappy, appealingly sweet red/blue fruit, spicecake and candied rose flavors that show impressive clarity and back-end cut. Silky, slow-building tannins add subtle grip to the finish, which hangs on with superb, floral- and game-driven tenacity. I really like the blend of Old and New World qualities here."
