93 points! Outstanding Distinct notes of green tea and spice elements are present on the red currant, earth and black raspberry aromas. The full-bodied and muscular middle weight plus flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration before culminating in a velvety, seductive and once again beautifully complex, long and wonderfully persistent finale.
