Galloni (92 points):
"Dark bright-hued red. Scents of ripe red berries, garrigue, woodsmoke and licorice, joined by a floral topnote that builds in the glass. Juicy and seamless in the mouth, offering gently sweet raspberry and lavender pastille flavors that deepen on the back half. Smooth and floral on the long, gently tannic finish, which leaves a subtle white pepper note behind."
