"Bright purple. Deeply pitched black and blue fruit liqueur, espresso, cola, vanilla and woodsmoke are energized by suggestions of black pepper, pungent flowers and smoky minerals. Deep, appealingly sweet and youthfully tannic, offering bitter cherry, cassis, dark chocolate and root beer flavors that very slowly unfold on the back half. Distinctly rich, with an assertive oak veneer but there's a lot of fruit here as well. Finishes with strong, fruity persistence and cherry, steadily building tannins adding grip to tenacious dark fruit liqueur flavors. Nothing shy here, that's for sure."

"This is the definition of a young ripe bomber with big berry aromas and floral notes. Hardness on the palate makes this a tough hill to conquer now—fierce tannins are unforgiving. Toasty blackberry and coffee flavors are gritty on a long finish with lasting blackness. Drink from 2019–2030."

"This big red shows a plush texture and bold flavors, delivering blackberry, black olive, cocoa and loamy earth notes backed by well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity. In the modern style. A bit angular now, but has stuffing. Best from 2019 through 2029. 4,800 cases made."
