Vinous 89 points - Bright red-ruby. Aromas of crushed dark berries and kirsch are lifted by a cool violet topnote. At once dense and juicy, with brisk acidity framing the fine-grained flavors of dark fruits, spices and fresh herbs. Finishes with smooth tannins and very good length.
Wine Spectator 90 points - There’s an enticing floral quality to the cherry, plum and wild berry flavors, with juniper notes midpalate. Features plenty of fresh acidity, with a complex, minerally finish that delivers hints of hoisin sauce. Drink now through 2020. 32,613 cases made.-KM
