"Brilliant ruby. Heady, spice-laced raspberry liqueur, spicecake and rose pastille scents are complemented by white pepper and smoky mineral nuances. Fleshy and concentrated but surprisingly graceful as well, offering intense red berry, cherry and floral flavors and suggestions of licorice and allspice. Finishes creamy, seamless and very long, with supple tannins building slowly. The 2011 version of this wine is aging very gracefully, by the way; a bottle that I tasted in July showed impressive freshness and intense red fruit and floral character along with round, even tannins that are just beginning to fade away."
