About

93

Ripe, almost sappy flavors of spice, kirsch and date are firmed by plush tannins and enlivened by juicy acidity in this expressive, medium- to full-bodied red. Long and mouthwatering, with smoky accents of espresso liqueur, dried herb and singed orange peel lingering on the finish. A rich, distinctive example. Drink now through 2025. 2,300 cases made. –AN
