(all Pommard clone and 50 percent new oak) Brilliant ruby-red. Deep-pitched cherry, potpourri and cola aromas are brightened by a hint of blood orange. Chewy and slow to open up, but aeration brings out sweet black raspberry, cherry and floral pastille flavors that show excellent clarity and depth for the vintage. Fine-grained tannins build steadily on a very long, sappy finish that echoes the floral and cola notes. This acts like a wine from a richer vintage.
Score: 91 points -- Josh Raynolds, Vinous, Sept 2016
