Deep coppery red colour robe with complex nose of brandied fruits and peppery spice. Well-structured, dense and rich with a long, spicy finish.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Alluring, with a mix of mulled spice, steeped plum, pastis, warm ganache and roasted alder notes that are intertwined from start to finish. Fine-grained grip holds the finish, showing a good tug of earth. Drink now through 2022. 1,800 cases made.-JM

Vinous 91 points - Opaque ruby. Perfumed aromas of red berry compote, cherry and woodsmoke, with a dusty mineral quality adding lift and cut. Shows very good depth and precision on the palate, offering sappy raspberry and candied lavender flavors that become spicier with air. Clings with very good tenacity on the finish, which features supple tannins and resonating spiciness.
