93 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Inky ruby. Aromas of ripe black and blue fruits, licorice and candied violet show outstanding clarity and spicy lift. Sappy and focused on the plate, offering juicy blueberry, bitter cherry, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that open up steadily and deepen on the back half. Turns sweeter on the impressively persistent finish, which features round, even tannins and resonating floral and exotic spice qualities. Drink: 2024-2034. (Sep 2019)"
