Winemaker NotesRuby red in color with orange hues, this wine offers an intense and complex bouquet with notes of violet, red berries (like raspberry and currant), and more deep aromas of licorice, mint and spices. On the palate, the wine is rich and full bodied, showing great structure, firm and velvety tannins, and a persistent finish.PressRated 93 Points Wine SpectatorLeads off with scents of graphite, mineral and menthol, giving way to flavors of cherry and black currant. Dense and powerful, with big, dusty tannins guarding the finish for now. Needs time. Best from 2022 through 2045.Rated 93 Points James SucklingPurity of fruit comes through with a plum, porcini and rose-petal character, which follow through to a medium to full body. A round and juicy finish. Delicious now, but will age nicely in the future.Rated 92 Points Wine & SpiritsThis wine opens with appealing scents and flavors of red cherry, tobacco and cedar, though they are tamped down by rigid tannins and warm alcohol. This needs time for the fruit tones to flesh out and match the wine’s powerful structure.
