Wine Spectator 91/100 - Vintage 2010|
Shows a little flash, with roasted mesquite and apple wood notes playing off each other, followed by a velvety core of plum sauce, currant confiture and Black Mission fig fruit. The sleek finish lets the fruit play out. Best from 2014 through 2025.
Wine Spectator 89/100 - Vintage 2014
Fresh and approachable in feel, with plum compote and blackberry reduction notes laced with licorice and violet hints. The moderate structure is brambly in feel. The fruit wins out easily on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2024.
