(93-96) points Vinous: “Bright violet. Mineral-accented blackberry and blueberry on the highly perfumed nose, complicated by sexy Asian spice and floral notes. Densely packed but energetic dark berry preserve flavors show hints of smoky bacon and candied violet and pick up a spicecake quality with air. Stains the palate and shows superb concentration with no excess weight. Finishes with bright mineral cut, slow-building tannins and superb persistence.”
