94 Points

Strong ruby garnet, purple reflections, brightening to the rim. Fine nuances of dried herbs and spices, fresh cherries, delicate hints of tangerine zest, smoky, subtle hints of damp gravel, fine balsamic-nutty touch in the background. Juicy, red cherry fruit, ripe tannins, finesse-rich and tightly structured, lively acidic arc, mineral-salty finish, good length despite its light-footedness, certain ageing potential for many years, classic.
