19.5/20 Points - Raymond Chan
Very dark, very deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with youthful purple tints, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is firmly concentrated with deep and intensely packed, fresh and vibrant aromas of dark-red berry and black cherry fruits melded with complexing layers of dark herbs and whole bunch stalk notes. The intensity and depth build in the glass. Medium-full bodied, the fruit flavours of dark-red berry and black cherry fruits are rich, ripe, lusciously sweet and vibrant and form an elegantly proportioned and deep core. Subtle dark herb and whole bunch stalk detail adds interest and complexity. The rich fruit is supported by very fine-grained tannin structure, with balancing fresh, lacy acidity. The palate is complete and flows with good energy to a long finish of black and dark red fruits entwined with herb elements.
