Wine Enthusiast: 94pts
Underbrush, dark berry, scorched earth and spice aromas emerge on this full-bodied red. The structured, refined palate delivers layers of ripe black cherry, blackberry jam, ripe raspberry, licorice and tobacco alongside firm, rounded tannins that give it a velvety texture. Drink 2017–2026.
