Vivid ruby-red. Highly perfumed red and dark berry liqueur, incense and Asian spice aromas show excellent clarity and pick up a suave floral nuance with air. Supple, open-knit and juicy on the palate, offering deeply concentrated black raspberry, cherry cola and floral pastille flavors and an exotic touch of five-spice powder. The floral quality repeats strongly on a smooth, impressively persistent finish that shows just a hint of supple, fine-grained tannins. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, December 2019)

Very young. Huge spicy licorice attack with strong herb component. Short and still rough around the edges. Needs time to integrate.
