2018 sisu - 94 pts from Vinous

Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. Intense­ly per­fumed aro­mas of ripe red and blue fruits, pot­pour­ri and vanil­la are com­ple­ment­ed by a smoky min­er­al nuance. Con­cen­trat­ed boy­sen­ber­ry, black rasp­ber­ry, spice­cake and laven­der pastille fla­vors are joined by can­died licorice and white pep­per notes on the back half. Fin­ish­es on an allur­ing­ly sweet note, with slow­ly emerg­ing tan­nins, strong vivac­i­ty and sharp focus. 94 pts
