About

94

Dense crimson-purple; the bouquet and palate are yet another Fox Creek masterclass from this vintage, the deep and gloriously rich palate crammed to the rafters with black fruits of every description, dark chocolate and ripe tannins. Doubtless oak is somewhere in the mix too. Drink by 2037.

92 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

Bright purple. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of cherry compote, blueberry and vanilla, with a smoky nuance building with air. Fleshy and sweet on the palate, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Dusty tannins come up late and add shape to the very long, smooth, intensely fruity finish.

91 Wine Spectator

Ripe, with grippy tannins around a plush core of spicy raspberry and black currant fruit, finishing smooth and harmonious. Best from 2015 through 2022. 3,800 cases made. –HS
