Here there is no reductive funk as the perfumed nose gracefully offers up notes of plum, black cherry, cassis and plenty of spice elements that include hints of Asian-style tea. The palate impression of the middle weight plus flavors is also quite sleek as the supporting tannins are even finer-grained on the powerful, mouth coating and driving finish. This excellent effort is a relatively robust RSV and while it’s certainly not rustic, it’s not a wine of finesse. (92-95)/2030+
