Wine EnthusiastStructured and loaded with finesse, this stunning red opens with scents of perfumed berry, rose petal, baking spice and a balsamic note. The focused palate delivers juicy black cherry, ground pepper, anise and tobacco alongside firm but refined tannins. It has great length, closing on a mineral note. Drink 2018-2028.
Wine SpectatorA stern, almost monolithic style, whose bright acidity and beefy tannins are softened by sweet cherry and spice flavors. This will take some time to come together, but all the elements are there. Best from 2020 through 2030. 1,000 cases made.
