Vinous 90 points - Opaque ruby. Potent aromas of dark berries, olive and pungent flowers, complicated by a mineral overtone. Smoky, palate-staining black and blue fruit flavors pick up a strong note of white pepper with air. I’d have guessed that there was quite a bit more Syrah in here. Closes spicy and long, with firming tannins coming on late and shaping the wine’s dense, dark fruit.
