Galloni (92 points):
"Deep, vivid red. Highly perfumed aromas of fresh raspberry, candied cherry and blood orange are complemented by suggestions of potpourri and Asian spices. Smells like a ripe Pinot Noir. Broad and silky on the palate, offering vibrant, spice-tinged red berry and floral pastille flavors and hints of allspice and star anise. Expands and deepens on the extremely long, focused finish, which features well-knit tannins and repeating floral pastille and spice qualities."
