This is a lavishly fruity red packed with flavors of black-cherry preserve and dried plums as well as savory, spicy accents of earth, cocoa and licorice. Soft, finely edged tannins and sunny acidity accentuate its easy-drinking, fruity demeanor. It's at peak now through 2023.
Score: 89 points. -- Anna Lee C. Iijima, Wine Enthusiast, 2019
