Deep red. Aromas of ripe red berries, cherry pit and pungent flowers, with a hint of licorice in the background. Shows very good depth as well as energy to its bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors, which take a sweeter turn with aeration. Closes with building spiciness, good clarity and rounded tannins that lend shape and gentle grip.
Score: 90 points -- Josh Raynolds, Vinous, May 2019
