IWC 93 WE 92 WS 91 Pts - International Wine Cellar - Inky ruby. Bright red fruits and spicecake on the highly perfumed nose, with sexy incense and floral notes adding nuance. Deep, sweet and energetic, boasting excellent clarity and vibrancy to its blackberry and bitter cherry flavors. Silky tannins build on the long, pliant, scented finish, which features powerful dark fruit preserve and violet pastille qualities.
According to Wine Enthusiast - Dense, dark, smoky, oaky aromas come with welcome nuances of licorice and graphite along with bold blackberry scents. This feels flush, layered and strong. Flavors of baking spices, blackberry, chocolate and char finish peppery, toasty, tannic and with plenty of black-fruit power. Drink through 2022.
Wine Spectator - Plush yet focused, this rich red delivers flavors of black cherry, blackberry and plum preserves, backed with mocha and smoky notes. Features firm tannins and bright acidity, leaving a clean, floral finish. Powerful, yet light-footed. Drink now through 2020. 14% ABV.
