Vinous 91 points - Youthful violet. Spicy, smoke-tinged cherry and dark berry scents are complemented by suggestions of candied violet and cola. Smoky black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors show very good depth and power, with a spicy element emerging as the wine opens up. Sappy, incisive and appealingly sweet on the finish, which is firmed by supple, well-knit tannins.

(WS90) Graphite and vanilla aromas mix with the pure raspberry coulis, fig and ripe cherry fruit in this bright, lively red. There's a sublayer of smoke and iron notes, with a lightly chewy finish. Drink now through 2014.
