Press & Reviews
Pretty floral and cherry notes are grounded by iron, tar and tobacco elements in this beefy red, accented by a hint of oak. The tannins are aggressive yet well-integrated. Finishes long and spicy, with fine grip. Best from 2018 through 2030. 1,083 cases made. –BS
A solid wine for the vintage with pretty fruit such as cherry and plum, as well as a light minerality. Full body with chewy tannins and a polished finish. Well-crafted young wine. Better in 2017.
