This polished red is focused and harmonious. Black cherry, tea, licorice, dried orange and spice notes mingle over firm, well-integrated tannins, while orange peel acidity keeps this lively. Expressive, in the traditional style. Drink now through 2024.

91 pts Vinous

Deep red. Lively, spice-accented red berry and dried cherry aromas, along with suggestions of potpourri, coconut and woodsmoke. Smooth and expansive on the palate, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors that pick up a zesty mineral quality with air. Candied rose and mocha notes linger on a smoke-tinged finish that shows very good clarity and fine-grained tannins.
