96-100 Points/Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast
Inky purple color. Opening bouquet is ripe, fruity, pulpy and correctly bitter; later sniffings discover intriguing notes of black pepper, cigar box and dried herbs. In the mouth, it's silky, ripe, fruity, concentrated and jammy. Finishes long and satiny. Crème de cassis doesn't come any better. A masterpiece.
