Wine Spectator – 90 points
Zesty and plump, with easygoing fruit, offering blackberry and pepper flavors that build richness toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2025.
Wine Enthusiast – 91 points
Appealing aromas of coffee, assorted dried herbs and whiffs of smoked meat are followed by a soft, sultry palate, full of plum flavors that glide on the finish. The tannins show a little tackiness at present, revealing the wine’s youth. Give it a short decant to see it deliver.
