Galloni (90-92 points):"Bright ruby. Raspberry, candied flowers and white pepper on the highly perfumed nose. Silky, palate-staining red berry compote flavors pick up subtle smoke and floral pastille qualities with air, along with a suggestion of allspice. Finishes appealingly sweet and long; fine-grained tannins lend grip to the juicy, clinging red fruit."
The Wine Cellar Insider (91 points):
"With a blast of garrigue, kirsch and licorice, complicated by floral notes, the wine is polished, suave, spicy and fresh, with good purity of fruit and an elegant, sweet, strawberry and kirsch filled finish."
