Review:
Inky ruby. Displays ripe dark fruit, licorice, olive and cracked pepper aromas, plus a vibrant mineral nuance that adds energetic lift. Sappy and focused on the palate, offering appealingly sweet black/blue fruit and spicecake flavors that show impressive depth as well as energy. Closes very long and precise, with a suave floral quality and dusty, slowly building tannins.
