Vinous 91 points - Bright purple. Deeply pitched aromas of ripe black and blue fruits, along with vanilla and mocha, are complicated by floral overtones and a touch of pipe tobacco. The appealingly sweet palate shows very good depth, with plush dark berry and cherry-vanilla flavors and lifting zesty minerals. The smooth, broad, gently tannic finish leaves behind notes of smoky minerals and candied blue fruit. Considering its heft, this wine is surprisingly graceful thanks to vibrant minerality.
