#24 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016
Opaque, dark purple color; Young, primary, wild and expressive aromas. Briary blue and black fruits with complex roasted meat and savory rhubarb notes, then a deep underlying autumnal loamy character Red currant and blackberry jam on the fruit-filled lively entry then wet gravel, iron and tapenade complexity. Building midpalate, chewy density and fruit sweetness. Mouthwatering finish with a dusting of bittersweet cocoa powder and broad round tannins. Decant for an hour in its youth and drink between 2016 and 2024.
Wine Spectator - "Plush, rich and impeccably structured, with floral blueberry and raspberry aromas accented by smoky pepper and complex, expressive flavors that combine mineral-tinged tannins with plump fruit. Best from 2018 through 2030."
