Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Assertive blackberry, candied licorice, bacon and potpourri scents are complemented by a smoky mineral overtone. Seamless and energetic in the mouth, offering deeply concentrated dark fruit and floral pastille flavors and a building suggestion of exotic spices. Finishes with emphatic mineral and dark fruit character, steadily building tannins and strong tenacity.
Score: 93 points -- Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 2019
