94 points

Exhibiting a fine blend of fruity and savory characteristics, this red evokes wild strawberry, cherry, juniper, leather and iron aromas and flavors. There is energy and a sweetness midpalate. The finish extends with refined tannins and freshness. Best from 2020 through 2034.

You can almost smell the countryside in this expressive red. Wild herb, underbrush, cherry and smoke notes weave throughout this supple red. Firms up on the finish while remaining fresh and resonant. Best from 2020 through 2035.
