2012 in the red - 90 pts from Vinous

Vivid ruby-red. High-pitched aro­mas of fresh red and dark berries, with a sexy flo­ral pastille nuance emerg­ing as the wine opens with air. Juicy and pre­cise on the palate, offer­ing intense black rasp­ber­ry and vio­let pastille fla­vors and a hint of spice­cake. Made in an ele­gant style, show­ing a seam­less tex­ture and fine-grained tan­nins that build slow­ly on the very long, spice-tinged finish.

Josh Raynolds, Vinous
