94-96 points, Vinous, 2020 Vintage
Saturated violet. Highly fragrant, mineral-accented boysenberry, cherry liquer, candied violet and allspice aromas are complemented by a smoky mineral nuance. Offers palate-staining dark berry, candied licorice and bitter chocolate flavors that pick up notes of candied flowers and exotic spices on the back half. Powerful but surprisingly lively as well, finishing very long and smooth, with sharp delineation and gently gripping tannins.
