...notes of smoke, toffee, fresh fruit and orange peel in harmony with well-integrated oak and a stony profile...palate is medium-bodied, with some polished, very fine tannins and a good mid-palate that is very balanced and fresh...

92Vinous / IWC, highly perfumed bouquet evoking ripe red and dark berries, incense and potpourri, with smoky minerality and Asian spice...palate is pliant and appealingly sweet, offering intense, concentrated black raspberry and lavender pastille flavors that deepen and spread out on the back half...excellent focus and silky tannins framing its assertive berry flavors.
