WS 92 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Exhibits a rich array of flavor and personality. Spicy, toasty anise and black licorice notes join cedary oak details, lending this a distinctive edge, with the blackberry and raspberry elements slow to move to the forefront. Ends with a persistent finish. Drink now through 2023."
Tasting Notes - "The color is a vibrant ruby red. Aromas of ripe cherry, fleshy black plum and dried rose petal are beautifully intermingled with subtle notes of smoke, thyme and anise. The palate opens with a delightful berries and cream character; bright raspberry, cranberry and cherry are nicely balanced by vanilla cream and a rich, rounded mouth-feel. It offers the perfect balance of sweet and savory with fig jam and candied blackberry notes, complemented by cedar, cocoa powder and dark spices. The overall impression is one of balanced structure, bright acidity and silky tannins with a long, lingering finish." 14.9% ABV.
