Review

Bright red. An explosively perfumed bouquet displays blackberry, rose and violet oil, gardenia, cinnamon, mace and smoky minerals. Fat, palate-staining red and dark berry flavors reach every corner of the palate, betraying no rough edges, tannins or warmth. Gains energy with air, finishing with nervy berry and cherry skin notes and excellent clarity. This is the type of wine that I'd like to drink by itself.
