"Named after the original owners' Spartan origins, this is the only Coriole site facing due north. A vivid dark ruby, this is a richer expression and yet still relatively light on its feet. Floral and lifted upon entry. A dense undercurrent of blue to purple fruit allusions, liquorice, tapenade and Cherry Ripe notes, bound by a reductive tension and enhanced by subtle oak handling ride long. 92 points"
