“This powerful red delivers flavors of plum, currant, espresso, licorice and mineral. The broad texture is supported by muscular, well-integrated tannins, while balsamic acidity keeps this balanced and lively. A bold, modern style that remains focused and fresh. Drink now through 2027.” – 93 points, Wine Spectator
