International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93Vivid ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of candied flowers, raspberry and Asian spices, with a deeper cola nuance emerging with air. Lively and precise on the palate, offering sappy red fruit flavors of uncommon depth. Rich but lithe and focused, with excellent finishing clarity and lingering spiciness.Author: Josh RaynoldsIssue: May/June 2013
