Creme de cassis, blackberry, smoked earth, toasted spice, and violets emerge from the glass, and it flows onto the palate with full-bodied richness, beautiful purity of fruit, and brilliant length. Gaining more minerality with time in the glass, it will continue to flesh out nicely with another handful of years in the cellar, and have two decades of ultimate longevity. – Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
