91 points | Vinous, Antonio Galloni
Brilliant red. Displays aromas of dried red berries, cherry pit and baking spices, plus a hint of potpourri in the background. An energetic, silky midweight wine that features smoke-accented raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of white pepper. Energetic and tightly wound, finishing long and spicy, with fine-grained tannins adding gentle grip.
