Fresh, racy, nuanced, and striking. Ripe aromas and flavors of blackberry, plum, olive and spice throughout, with very fine, whispery tannins, and so much finesse. It’s incredibly drinkable right now and has decades before it. One of my favorite wines of the tasting. (Jason Wilson, Vinous, July 2020)

Too closed at the moment. Opened up somewhat after a couple of hours in the decanter. Oak is not yet integrated, but the fruit and acidity speaks of great things to come. Would love to try it with 10–20 more years of bottle age.
