Bright ruby. Intense, mineral-accented aromas of blackberry, floral pastilles and Indian spices, along with a hint of cola. Spicy, palate-staining dark berry flavors show impressive density, with smoky minerality providing sharpness and lift. Packs a serious punch on the long, youthfully tannic finish, which echoes the mineral and berry notes. Possesses the depth and structure to age; I'd keep my hands off of this one for at least a few more years. (JR)  (12/2014)
