“Inky magenta. Fresh black and blue fruit, floral and spice qualities on the assertively perfumed nose, which picks up suave mineral and vanilla flourishes with air. Sappy, focused and appealingly sweet, offering palate-staining blueberry, cassis and cherry preserve flavors and hints of salty olive, licorice and candied violet. Blends depth and energy with a steady hand and closes impressively long and spicy, with a resonating mineral note and well-knit tannins coming in late.”
