Vinous (Josh Raynolds) 92 points! "Translucent red. Displays mineral-accented red/blue fruit, incense and candied violet, along with hints of cola and allspice. Appealingly sweet and densely packed on the palate, offering sappy black raspberry, boysenberry and floral pastille flavors and a touch of spicecake. Fine-grained, mounting tannins give shape to a long, chewy finish that lingers with strong persistence and building sweetness."
