Wine EnthusiastEnticing scents of red berry, baking spice, Mediterranean scrub and a hint of eucalyptus slowly emerge. The elegantly structured palate delivers black cherry, licorice, clove and espresso framed in youthfully austere but refined tannins. It's still young and tightly wound but balanced, with bright acidity. Drink 2020-2028.

Wine SpectatorThis is rich, sporting cherry, graphite, leather and spice flavors allied to a taut, linear frame. Firm tannins dominate the earthy finish. Needs some time to come together. Best from 2021 through 2035. 2,500 cases made.
