From 1/2 bottle. Such a beauty. Fresh floral nose that also shows ripe blackberry and dark cherry. Full-bodied, with fierce, but silky soft and ripe tannins. Although there's plenty of fruit (freshly crushed blackberry and black cherry), it's more about freshness and minerality. Beautiful long finish with lots of spice and dark chocolate. 94 points
