93 points "Rated: 93 by Josh Raynolds, May/Jun 09 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Inky ruby. Assertive, heady cassis, olive, floral and incense scents are strongly reminiscent of the northern Rhone. Extremely fresh red and dark berry flavors are complicated by candied violet, minerals and cracked pepper, with silky tannins adding structure. Turns more tangy with air, picking up sexy Asian spices that linger impressively on the finish. This is already delicious. " Best 2012-2020
