94 Points

Dark ruby garnet, purple reflections, brightening to the rim. Smoky-tobacco herbal savouriness, dark berry confit, ripe plums, a touch of dark chocolate, red cherries in the background. Juicy, taut, nuances of sour cherries, fine tannins, freshly structured, salty-limestone touch on the finish, cherry and light-bodied, almost sandy, immensely drinkable style, certain ageing potential.
