This is impressively ripe yet superbly fresh with black cherry and floral scents that are trimmed in a background application of wood. There is excellent mid-palate concentration and richness to the powerful muscular and energetic large-scaled flavors that possess superb reserves of mouth coating dry extract that serves to impart a seductive mouth feel to the dusty serious balanced and strikingly long finish.

Medicinal red cherry, raspberry, spices and mint on the vibrant nose. Sweet and suave but at the same time penetrating in the style of the better 2010s, with harmonious acidity framing and energizing the flavors of red fruits, minerals and medicinal herbs. Sexy earth tones contribute complexity, and the long, youthfully tight finish shows an exhilarating spice character. I would not be surprised if this wine merited a higher rating by 2022 or so.

17.5/20 Spiced (like Drambuie?), really remarkable open-knit fruit and medicinal notes. Fruit is a little dry and tart, but it works in the mix. Traditional, tight. (RH)
