96 Points

Strong crimson colour with purple reflections, brightening to ochre at the rim. Red forest-fruit confit, fresh cherries, and candied orange zest combine with savoury tobacco and floral notes. Juicy and elegant, it has ripe, well-integrated tannins and cranberry flavours before red berries and delicate nougat continue through the minerally, saline finish. Good ageing potential.
