2017 pas de deux - 93 pts from Vinous
Deep, lurid violet. Vibrant aromas of fresh dark fruits, smoky bacon, olive and exotic spices, along with a floral nuance that builds with air. Energetic black/blue fruit, violet pastille and spice-cake flavors slowly spread out and turn sweeter on the back half. Shows outstanding energy and sharp definition on the energetic finish, which features gently gripping tannins and resonating floral and spice notes.
