About

91-93

A beautifully complex nose exhibits spicy and soft earth, red and blue pinot aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is excellent mid-palate density to the tautly muscular medium weight flavors that also brim with dry extract and minerality before terminating in a gorgeously long and well-balanced finale.

90-92 Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

Bright ruby red. Perfumed scents of blueberry, blackberry, and bitter chocolate... Suppler, sweeter, and more pliant in the mouth, communicating a plush quality to its enticing raspberry fruit, Finishes with fine-grained tannins and noteworthy length.
