96 Points

Dark ruby with purple reflections. Already approachable. Savoury herbal, leather, and tobacco notes combine with ripe cherry and candied orange zest. Taut and tightly-knit, it shows fine berry fruit flavours, ripe, supporting tannins, and a mineral core. The saline finish echoes with ripe fruit and a hint of nougat. Good length and ageing potential (2025-2050).
