Wine Spectator 90 points - This concentrated, rich red needs air to reveal the black cherry, blackberry, chocolate, tar and charred flavors, with a Bourbon note and plenty of new oak. Long, if not that complex now. Decant now or age short-term. Merlot. Best from 2018 through 2027. 250 cases imported.
