84pts Wine Enthusiast - Sean P. Sullivan
Vanilla, wood shavings and a light oxidative aroma and followed by sweet wood and vanilla flavors with an astringent feel. The oak overrides any sense of variety without the fruit to stand up to it.
Currants, dark berries and meat jerky give way to aslate and granite focused minerality. The slightest whiff of red fruit precedes robust, well-rounded tannins. The palate unfolds with notes of peach and carries a long, food-friendly structured finish.
