Assertive red berry liqueur, cherry cola, potpourri and incense aromas show outstanding clarity and mineral lift. Offers concentrated yet impressively energetic black raspberry, bitter cherry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors. A subtle blood orange flourish adds refreshing back-end cut. Gains weight and sweetness with air and finishes spicy, subtly tannic and extremely long, with resonating florality and a touch of smokiness. 50% whole clusters and 20% new oak. -- Josh Raynolds

A dense, detailed expression of that vineyard, planted to a single Dijon clone, it's loaded with tart black fruits, annotated with dried herbs, earth and clay. The finish brings zippy, citrus-infused acidity. PAUL GREGUTT

Wine Spectator, January 2020
This is all about structure, with an impressive core of bright acidity and finely groomed tannins, wrapped in pinpoint notes of raspberry, violet and crushed stone. Needs time to bloom. Best from 2021 through 2029. — T.F.

It’s medium-bodied with oodles of ripe, earth-laced fruits, a pleasantly chalky frame and woven freshness, finishing long and flavorful. I suspect this will get better with a bit more time in bottle. - Erin Brooks
