Structured, dense, minty. Firm and tense, almost chewy, with floral, sour cherry, and earthy components on a nervy acid spine. This packs a punch and really has quite a lot going on. Bright future ahead . Gorgeous.

Very high toned and pretty nose. That “natural” thing, spices, sour cherries, mid season cherries, floral, cinnamon. A knockout nose. Palate is less fruity than nose suggests. Pure, clean and juicy. Complex, pure and balanced. Very very drinkable and in the zone. Barely there tannins and very fresh.

Vivid ruby. Powerful red/dark berry aromas pick up a sexy floral quality and a touch of spiciness with air. Concentrated yet lively in style, offering palate-staining, mineral-tinged black raspberry, bitter cherry and blood orange flavors that show excellent clarity and turn sweeter on the back half. Shows a touch of candied licorice on the gently tannic finish, which lingers with superb, mineral-driven persistence. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, October 2019)

Bright violet. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes an array of red and blue fruits, pungent flowers and exotic spices, and a smoky mineral nuance emerges as the wine gets air. Sweet, seamless and penetrating on the palate, offering juicy, appealingly sweet boysenberry, cherry and rose pastille flavors that deepen through the back half while maintaining energy. Shows fine definition and mineral cut on the strikingly long finish, which is given shape by silky, well-knit tannins. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2021)
