92 points – There’s a freshness to the blueberry and cassis aromas with gently spicy and tarry complexity. The palate delivers a very resolved and seamless core of ripe plums, blueberries and cassis. Full-bodied and fresh. Let this settle in, hold for 3-4 years.

Medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, and concentrated, it has terrific purity as well as building, fine tannins. It will keep for 10-15 years.
