Review

97 Points

Deep dark ruby, opaque core, purple reflections. Subtle nutty wood on the nose, cinnamon, sandalwood and dark chocolate. Great volume on the palate, rich and creamy, lots of drive, full and yet not heavy, ethereal and quite relaxed despite the powerful tannins. Charming, seductively creamy and seamlessly harmonious. Finishes with sweet fruit and silky-juicy structure, finely mineral in the background and salty with the tannins remaining almost in suspension.
