Dunnuck noted that the wine saw a touch more stems and was fermented with 35% whole clusters, with the aging spanning 11 months in 45% new French oak. He highlighted its "beautiful red and black fruits as well as black tea, spicy herbs, and foresty, earthy nuances." He also mentioned its round, supple, layered mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and a great finish, suggesting that it will benefit from a year or two of bottle age and evolve gracefully over the following decade.
