Vivid purple. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe cherry and blackberry, complicated by notes of candied flowers, incense and smoky Indian spices. Sappy and expressive, offering intense red and dark berry and violet flavours underscored by juicy acidity. Impressive urgency is supported by a nervy spine of acidity. Shows excellent focus and vivacity on the gentle tannic finish, which lingers with superb floral tenacity. Josh Ratnolds, Vinous.
