About the Wine
90-93 points, Burghound
“An exuberantly spicy nose reflects a plethora of floral nuances on the ripe aromas of the essence of plum and dark currant. There is again excellent density to the bigger-bodied and richer flavors that don’t possess the same minerality on the powerful, dusty, and built-to-age finale. This could use better depth, but the potential for that to occur appears to be present.”
