($50) Deep, bright ruby. Intensely perfumed nose offers an array of red and dark berry scents, along with Asian spices, smoky minerals and fresh violet. Broad and sappy, with fresh raspberry and blackberry flavors, a velvety texture and a slow-building licorice quality. Seemed to gain freshness and energy with air, while completely absorbing its suave tannins. Pretty impressive stuff. (JR)

Very fruity with dark berries and some tannins when first opened. After decanting for two hours, secondary flavors developed and tannins softened up. However, on the palate, I feel the flavors were never totally in balance. Nose is light and the finish wasn't very noticeable. ( I am holding a pretty high standard here)
