98 POINTS - James Suckling, May 2016
A glass-coating opaque purple color, it sports an alluring nose of toasty oak, mineral, licorice, lavender, exotic spices, and assorted black fruits. Dense, rich, and voluptuous on the palate, this is a full-bodied beauty.
Dark ruby colored, it offers a complex bouquet of cloves, cinnamon, tobacco and black cherries. On the palate, layers of ripe red fruits are combined with notes of dark chocolate and slight anise leading to an amazingly long finish.
