2013 in the red - 90 pts from Vinous
Opaque purple. Powerful, deep-pitched aromas of blue fruit preserves, licorice and mocha are lifted by a suggestion of cracked pepper. Gently sweet dark fruit and spicecake flavors show good depth and gain energy with aeration. Rich and expansive but lively as well, finishing chewy and long, with lingering smokiness and dusty, harmonious tannins.
