9.1

Dark cassis, caramelized, brown sugar, dark fading floral bouquet nose. Dark ripe ruby cassis, big dark minerals, soft spice, light baking spices, just a very slight touch of herbs, brown sugar/molasses, violets and its a juicy round smooth evolved tannin dark fruit finish with big acidity. 91 with the potential for a higher score with 5-7 more years of age.
