95 Points

Deep ruby, delicate ochre rim getting brighter on the rim. Tobacco and smoke, nuances of red wild berry confit, inviting mineral notes, delicate notes of cherries, but also truffles and tar. Complex, powerful texture, firm tannins, youthful and long, shows great finesse, sweet finish, orange confit in the aftertaste, salty minerality in the aftertaste.
