This is dense and chewy, but not tiring to drink, thanks to fresh acidity and an edgy, gravelly feel that drives the blackberry, currant and sweet spice notes.

The long finish has great briary grip, with notes of garrigue and hot stone checking in. Best from 2010 through 2030. – JM collapse

Explosively perfumed nose offers seductive raspberry, kirsch and floral scents, with a suave mineral underpinning. Extremely fresh, with precise red fruit and floral pastille flavors strongly reminiscent of a broad-shouldered pinot noir. Finishes with outstanding clarity, sweetness and persistence. collapse

Transparent crimson. Lots of ripe fruit and pepper. Cool finish. Very easy to like and complete, though there are the drying tannins of 2009 here too. 17.5/20
