Intensely perfumed, mineral-accented aromas of black raspberry and boysenberry, joined by exotic spice, potpourri and incense nuances that build with air. Energetic and focused on the palate, offering lithe, precise red and dark berry liqueur and violet pastille flavors and hints of star anise and cracked pepper. The floral note carries powerfully through a strikingly long finish, which features resonating red fruit and mineral notes and suave, well-judged tannins. This wine's elegant character is quite something, especially in the context of a hot vintage. One-third whole clusters and 25% new oak. -- Josh Raynolds

It's only medium-bodied, but it's admirably concentrated, with a silky-creamy texture on the palate and charming floral notes that linger on the crisp finish. It should drink well for a decade or more.- JC

Rich, medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, and elegant, it's slightly tight and closed and will be better in 2-3 years of bottle age.
