Wine Spectator 97 points - A mix of sweet cherry, raspberry, floral, tobacco, tea and balsamic flavors mingle in this complex, layered red. The acidity and tannins are present and well-integrated as this remains elegant and harmonious on the lingering finish. There’s a racy aspect, with a tobacco and mineral aftertaste. Best from 2016 through 2035.
