Purpled crimson with ruby glimmer. A sublime stream of floral rose petal, crushed raspberry and fresh strawberry elegantly permeate from what is still a recessed fruit core. An omnipresent and me;culously laced, minerality nuances a wet slate and flinty backbone. Easily the tightest and the finest aperture of intensity seen in the line-up so far, its ability to offer a limitless stream of truly evolving, pure berry fruit whose illuminating mineral traces is remarkable and a strong promise of substantial future extension. A meticulously intricate and finely chalky structure seamlessly carries liquid crushed rock and rose petal infused raspberry whose brightness is amplified by the complex, all natural acidity. Confectionary musk without the sweetness, ladies cosmetic and GlaciÃ cherry ripple throughout the wave like moments of concentration and orchestral resonance in the long finish. Amazingly light and svelte yet still offering an abundance of juicy, ultra fine tannin whose polish is beyond the extraordinary.
98 Point Rated - Joe Czerwinski Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Rose petal and tea leaves add nuance to the oodles of blueberries and cherries that form this wine's core, while the dense, rich palate carries those flavors on a velvety blanket of ripe tannins."
95 Point Rated - James Halliday's Wine Companion
"It took me a while to reach a conclusion on this wine. It's big and ripe and concentrated with a mass of cedar, spice, dried red fruit, tobacco and black plum. And there's big grainy tannins that coat the mouth from the middle back, but under it all is a core of succulent fruit, waiting. Patience the key here."
