#79 Wine Spectator's TOP 100
94 Points from James Suckling
Aromas of ripe, fresh, mixed cherries and a gentle, stony-mineral edge. This has really impressive depth and structure with such ripe and pure aromas of, red to dark cherries, making a very juicy impression on the long, fresh and flavorful palate.
90 Points from Vinous
Vivid ruby-red. Pungent, spice-accented dark berry, cherry and succulent herb scents show good clarity and pick up a hint of cola with air. Gently sweet and plush in style, the 2018 offers black raspberry, cherry-cola and spicecake flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Finishes with repeating spiciness and fine-grained tannins that lend subtle grip to a clinging cherry note.
