Bright purple. Spicy, mineral-laced dark berries, menthol and violet on the incisive nose. Smoky and focused on the palate, offering energetic bitter cherry and cassis flavors that unfurl slowly as the wine opens up. Shows very good energy and peppery bite on the gently tannic finish, which lingers with strong, floral-tinged persistence.
90 points | Josh Raynolds,

Intense garnet-red colour with purple tints. Delicate aromas of blackberry fruits, with vanilla and light oaky notes. Rich on the palate with a good sweetness and a firm tannic structure. Final notes of fresh blackcurrant, violet and oriental spices.
