Very aromatic and crystalline, the mix of ripe juicy wild red/black berry fruit mixes well with the wines more savory and mineral elements. I find the tannins quite pliant this vintage, there’s generosity there but enough lift and gentle grip to provide structure. A touch of ethyl acetate in the background but nothing offensive.

Bright violet. Pungent, mineral- and smoke-accented cherry and dark berry aromas expand slowly with air, picking up subtle olive and violet nuances. Chewy and tightly focused on entry, but opens up quickly to offer appealing sweet cherry and cola flavors. The smoky note recurs on an impressively long, gently tannic finish that leaves a suggestion of candied flowers behind. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, April 2020)
