PRESS: Wine Spectator - 92 points. 'Ripe, vibrant cherry and blackberry fruit is accented by iron, leather and wild herb notes in this supple, harmonious red. Turns more linear as it evolves, ending in a long, mineral- and spice-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2029.'

An intense ruby red in color, the wine offers fruity aromas with violet and vanilla notes. On the palate, the wine is ripe, supple and balanced with tannins supported by a vein of acidity that brings out flavors of blackberry and cherry. The wine is persistent and mineral on the finish and aftertaste.
