Degree of alcohol: 14.5%
Beautiful and magenta color. Super flourish. Legs off glass is great and fluid for 14.5%
Deep currant and anise scented, off the inhale you have incredible almost menthol scented backdrop. One sniff of this glass really hits deep and fills your body with its flavor .
Medium body. Spicy and incredibly dry. The grape varietal is amazing and well balanced , juicy , dry , but incredible tannin profile completes this wine .
One truly exquisite wine.
My rating: 97/100
#62 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2015
Brilliant garnet-red color, with warmer tinges developing over time. Unmistakable bouquet, very pleasant, intense yet ethereal, very persistent, at times spiced, with aromas of truffles, licorice and dried flowers. Dry taste, with important, full tannins.
Wine Spectator: 93/100.
This red is tightly wound, binding the cherry, strawberry, licorice and mentholated herb flavors with fine-grained tannins and lively acidity. All the elements are there, but this needs time to find equilibrium. Fine length. Best from 2018 through 2030.
