Brilliant ruby. Aromas of ripe cherry, singed plum, candied flowers and licorice; a spicy, smoky mineral topnote adds urgency. In a broad, generous style, offering plush red and dark berry preserve, violet pastille and cracked pepper flavors and a sweetening suggestion of cola. Round, pliant tannins give gentle grip to an impressively long, smoky finish that strongly echoes the cherry and floral notes. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2020)

Still young but really came alive with some air. Super rich, spicy, dark fruit.

The nose could use time to open up, but the fruit shines. Thick black cherry and plum with a touch of meat.
