VINOUS 93 POINTS
Dark scarlet. An expressive bouquet evokes fresh red and dark berries, rose oil, incense and vanilla. Concentrated yet energetic as well, offering palate-staining, spice-laced black raspberry, cherry cola and floral pastille flavors that pick up a smoky mineral note on the back half. Delivers a suave blend of depth and finesse and finishes with fine delineation, harmonious tannins and lingering spiciness.

WINE ENTHUSIAST 91 POINTS
This full-bodied, blocky wine is composed of the winery’s selection of its three best barrels, including one that is brand-new. The aromas touch on high-toned, while the flavors are of cherries and chocolate. The tannins are textured and chewy.
