97 Points

Deep dark ruby, opaque core, purple reflections with subtle brightening on the rim. Multi-faceted bouquet underlaid with fine herbal savouriness and a hint of nougat, dark forest berries, black cherry, cassis and fine wood savouriness. Juicy, elegant, fine cherry fruit, silky tannins, fresh acidity, mineral and long with a delicately savoury finish and touch of dark nougat. Definite ageing potential.
