2012 i.p.o. - 90 pts from Vinous

Dark ruby. Smoke-accent­ed aro­mas of cher­ry, cas­sis, pipe tobac­co and vio­let, with a pep­pery nuance adding vibran­cy. Juicy and focused on entry, then broad­er and fleshi­er in the mid­dle, offer­ing sweet black and blue fruit fla­vors with sug­ges­tions of licorice and fruit­cake. Spreads out nice­ly on the fin­ish, which fea­tures round tan­nins and repeat­ing smoke and flo­ral notes.

Josh Raynolds, Vinous
