R.P. 91 points- It smells of cassis, black raspberry preserves, and rare, grilled beef. While intensely fruited, this dense, mouth-filling cuvee displays no superficial sense of sweetness, but rather a great purity; subtle but insistent fruit skin tartness; along with concentrations of juniper, mint, fennel and sage. Deep toasted nut and red meat notes well-up and crest with the wave of herbal and black fruit concentrates in a superb finish that betrays not a hint of its alcohol as heat.
