Dark berries, spice and iodine. Hints of dried fruit, too. Full-bodied, round and juicy with lovely fruit and round tannins. Flavorful finish. Delicious and decadent already. Hard not to drink now, but better in 2021.

Wine Spectator, April 2020

A beam of sappy cherry and kirsch marks this lush, smooth red, with a core of fruit accented by loamy earth and spice notes. Shows a light smoky cast and a long finish. Best from 2021 through 2033. 350 cases imported. — BS
