Color - Garnet-red with ruby highlights that take on a slightly orange tone over time
Bouquet - Intense nose with overtones of vanilla, spices, withered roses and underbrush.
Taste - Dry, full-bodied with velvety texture and great balance. It is very long-lasting.
Wine Spectator 91 points - "There's a hard, iron edge to this red, softened somewhat by ripe cherry and strawberry flavors. Licorice and earth accents chime in as this unfolds to the long finish. Just a bit dry in the end. Best from 2016 through 2029."
