A well-structured, long-lived wine with intense garnet red color. The aroma is intense and fruity with notes of cherry, prune and pleasant tones of cinnamon and toasted hazelnuts. The taste is austere, full, harmonious and pleasantly tannic, with a persistent finish.

Wine SpectatorA rich red, with cherry, strawberry, spice and tar flavors, backed by dense, chewy tannins. Comes together on the long aftertaste, presenting echoes of sweet fruit and spice. Best from 2019 through 2033. 1,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastCamphor, eucalyptus, berry and a whiff of cellar floor lead the nose. The bright palate shows Morello cherry, star anise and aromatic herb alongside tightly wound tannins that leave a firm, austere finish.
