"Vivid ruby. Smoky cherry and dark berries on the deeply pitched, highly aromatic nose. Powerful black raspberry and Indian spice flavors stain the palate, picking up a suave floral pastille nuance with air. The smoky note comes back on the youthfully tannic, incisive finish, which lingers with serious tenacity and appealing sweetness. — Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, May/June 2014"
