Yet it's full-bodied and intense, almost creamy in texture, perhaps the most powerful of the four 2017s. Raspberries and cherries combine with Mediterranean herbs and hints of cinnamon, allspice, clove and star anise in a wine that shows remarkable balance and elegance despite the richness. It should drink well for at least a decade and a half. - Joe Czerwinski

It's a plush, full-bodied sip that dazzles with pristine blackberry and raspberry flavors marked by a sheen of minerality. Delicate and delightfully silky in mouthfeel, it's irresistible young but should gain complexity through 2030. A remarkable value for such finesse. ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA

Offering plenty of red fruits, dried earth, and spice-laced aromatics, ultra-fine tannins, and a silky, moderately intense mouthfeel, drink it on release and over the following 10-15 years.
