Wine Enthusiast: 94pts
This young winery continues to impress. This deep, dark, concentrated wine builds upon black cherry, vivid acids, a touch of Meyer lemon, and a powerful midpalate that unveils some gently savory notes along the way. The extended, seamless finish brings a pleasing touch of baking spices.
Brilliant red. A highly aromatic bouquet evokes ripe red fruits and Asian spices, along with a smoky mineral overtone. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering sweet raspberry preserve, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that slowly tighten up with air. Shows a suave blend of power and finesse for the vintage, finishing with mounting tannins and excellent clarity and persistence.
