Vinous, 94 Points: Brilliant ruby. A highly complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits, Indian spices and candied flowers, and a smoky mineral nuance gains strength as the wine opens up. Stains the palate with sweet black raspberry and boysenberry flavors that deepen and become spicier on the back half. Delivers an impressive combination of power and finesse and shows no excess fat. Lingers with superb tenacity on the finish, which features velvety tannins and a suave, lingering floral quality.
