Steve Tanzer, IWC 88 points: “Ruby-red. Spicy blackberry and blueberry on the nose, with licorice, espresso and fresh violet notes gaining volume with air. Pliant dark fruit flavors display liqueur-like density and are a bit four-square, with strong back-end sweetness. Finishes soft and gently persistent. A bit simple but has tasty fruit.”
