Vinous: “Opaque ruby. Heady dark berry, spicecake and floral aromas are complicated by white pepper, anise and cola. Powerful dark berry compote flavors show impressive depth and gain sweetness with air, taking a turn to brighter raspberry and displaying a sexy floral quality. Finishes spicy and very long, leaving intense dark berry, cherry and licorice pastille notes behind. A very impressive showing for this property and for the vintage.
