Average price: $32.59 from 8 stores
Fairly floral on the nose with lots of perfumed oak aromas framing a core of bright, spicy blackberry and lingonberry fruit. This really flows across the palate with an excellent blend of richness of fruit and firmness of structure. The acids are a touch low, lending this additional weight in the mouth but the tannins, copious as they may be, are rather soft and polished. layers of cocoa, dried herb, slightly dried blackberry and mulberry fruit and finely integrated wood spice emerge on the palate with a lovely streak of black cherry leading to a finely focused, spice and tobacco scented finish. Perhaps a bit too oaky, the texture of this wine is excellent. powerful yet lean with excellent persistence to the black fruits on the finish. 91pts
