Review

Bright ruby-red.  Highly perfumed aromas of black and blue fruits, apricot, potpourri and woodsmoke, with a sexy Asian spice nuance adding complexity.  Juicy, penetrating blueberry and mulberry flavors show outstanding depth, with a spine of zesty minerality providing lift.  Offers a compelling blend of richness, weight and vivacity and finishes with superb clarity, power and spicy persistence.  I suspect that this hugely concentrated wine will age along a slow, steady, very long curve.
