Tasting Notes

An old-school nose of meaty, spicy dark fruit, smoke and tobacco but with a lifted, floral fragrance over the top of it. A tight tannic structure frames a middle-weight palate with good density and weight of fruit. There is clarity and purity here and a fine, detailed finish. Very accomplished and sure to appeal. Drink 2017-2030+ 16.5

Reviews & Scores
