2018 pas de deux - 93 pts from Vinous

Dark ruby. Pun­gent, spice and smoke accent­ed scents of ripe red and dark berries, vio­let, licorice, mocha, and smoky min­er­als. Silky and ener­getic on the palate, offer­ing juicy Cham­bord and boy­sen­ber­ry fla­vors com­ple­ment­ed by a hint of cracked pep­per. Becomes deep­er with air, with no loss of ener­gy, and fin­ish­es smoky and impres­sive­ly long, dis­play­ing dis­creet tan­nins and repeat­ing vanil­la and smoke notes. 93 pts
