Rich and expressive, this red delivers bold flavors of plum, blackberry and licorice, balanced by graphite, black tea and forest floor notes. Tangy acidity offsets the firm tannins. Exuberant. Drink now through 2028.
James Suckling 91/00: Good, linear backbone to this red with ripe-fruit, cedar and toasted-oak character and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold.
Decanter 90/00: Red berry fruit vibrancy with restrained spicy character providing complexity on the nose. The palate is juicy and has mostly velvety structure.
Wine Enthusiast 90/00: Berry and plum aromas come with ample oak and touches of smoke and char. The palate brings flavors of plum, blackberry and vanilla lifted by bright acidity, with an extended mocha finish.
