« Prev Next » 23 of 35
A bit hard and black fruited on the nose with licorice, toast, and slight chemical floral accents. Rather smooth with supple tannins on entry, this is not a small scaled wine but it comes off as rather elegant with an open feel and subtle flavors. Nothing jarring here, just a nice core of red fruit with hints of raspberries and a touch of red plum that's framed by some earthy elements, a nice sheen of oak, and lovely sweet herbal components on the back end. This is easy to drink with good acidity driving the finish, which could be a bit longer and does show a bit of heat. Elegant and subtly complex, this might improve over the next 2-4 years but all it needs to be enjoyed today is a nice steak. 89pts
