Limpid ruby. Suave, highly perfumed aromas of raspberry liqueur, cola, potpourri and five-spice powder, along with a smoky mineral overtone. Sweet, impressively concentrated red fruit preserve and floral pastille flavors are complicated by suggestions of Asian spices and rhubarb that build in the glass. At once powerful and graceful, finishing with superb focus, lingering sweetness and silky, harmonious tannins. This vibrant, complex wine is a serious knockout for the vintage.
