91 points - Vinous "Saturated ruby. Ripe cherry and cassis aromas display a peppery nuance and pick up a sexy floral pastille note with air. Sappy, supple and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated black and blue fruit flavors that turn livelier on the back half. Supple tannins sneak in late, adding shape to very persistent dark berry and rose pastille qualities. I really like the mix of power and vivacity here."
