TASTING NOTES

"Opaque ruby. Powerful, mineral-tinged aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, candied flowers, olive and licorice, along with a smoky overtone that builds in the glass. Stains the palate with sweet, energetic black/blue fruit, violet pastille and spicecake flavors that show outstanding purity and mineral-drive. The spice and floral notes repeat emphatically on a strikingly long, lively finish that's shaped by velvety, even tannins." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com

"Meaty, fleshy, chewy, full in body, but lacks the vibrancy of the 2017s. More shut down than you might expect. Very much teething. Finely tannic." Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
