Black cherry colour with a subtle and complex nose of ripe strawberry and spices. The palate is well structured with black fruits (prunes) and spicy aromas complemented by silky tannins. Good aromatic persistence on black fruit.
Wine Spectator 91 points - A sappy, kirsch-filled version, featuring cherry paste, red licorice and roasted apple wood notes that drive through the finish. Best from 2014 through 2024. 1,133 cases made.-JM

Vinous 90 points - Vivid red. High-pitched, pinot-like aromas of raspberry, zesty minerals and fresh flowers, with a spicy topnote. Silky and sharply focused, offering energetic red fruit flavors and a hint of orange pith. Finishes sweet and long, with firm grip, smooth tannins and a lingering floral note.
