$24.64-$31.99, 88 points, begins dark ruby tapering to orange-red with a thin clear rim.
Earth, flowers, dried herbs and sweet cooking spices make for a complex aroma.
The medium-plus body accentuates good acidity and round mild tannin which allows plum, black currant, boysenberry, licorice, and earthy herbal qualities a clear path through the palate, and trailing into a weak finish.
My best guess is that this wine is past its peak, though quite drinkable.
I'm not sure, but the bottle does remind me of a tortoise (Elodian); however that's just a guess and could be referencing something else.
