Shimmering ruby-red. Smoke-tinged aromas of candied cherry and blackberry, along with vanilla and espresso nuances. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering concentrated, appealingly sweet red and blue fruit and spicecake flavors that spread out steadily with air. Well-knit tannins frame the finish, which hangs on with strong, floral- and spice-driven persistence. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, April 2021)

Delicious infanticide. Everything about this wine was great. Wonderful balance. Could go so much longer, but oh so delicious with a little time in the decanter. Kicking off the holiday season!

Opened up after a few hour decant, but still needed a marbled steak for balance. Deep dark blackberry pie, tobacco, evergreen needles, and uplifted cranberry. Well balanced with great purity of fruit and persistent length. American oak flavors surround both red and black forest berries. Still very youthful... definitely decant or cellar.
