Vivid ruby. Aromas of black raspberry, candied flowers, and smoky minerals, backed by a subtle peppery nuance. Gently sweet red and dark berry preserve flavors deepen and spread out slowly with air. Fine-grained tannins provide grip to a nicely persistent finish that repeats the red fruit note. 89-91 points by Vinous Media.
