Ratings

Antonio Galloni: (91-94)
Healthy medium red. Knockout nose combines redcurrant, smoky minerals, iron, flowers and fresh blood, plus a hint of prune. Dense, lush and fine-grained, but with terrific lift and sappiness to the fresh, soil-inflected flavors of redcurrant, kirsch and menthol. The vibrant, tactile finish coats the mouth with fruits and minerals and leaves the salivary glands humming.
