Wine Enthusiast

Aromas of dark-skinned berry, violet and dark spice mingle with balsamic notes of camphor. Elegantly structured, the linear palate reveals mature Morello cherry, licorice and a hint of espresso framed in firm, fine-grained tannins. Give it a few more years to fully unwind. Drink 2022–2027.
