Review

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.
