Expert Reviews

The nose of this wine is a little quiet to start, but it eventually opens to reveal notes of plums, red cherries, peppery spices and dried green herbs. Tangy, plump, plummy fruit leads the palate, ensconced in a lovely texture and focused line of savory, spicy tannins. The finish is long and fruity. Drink now–2026. 89 Points, CHRISTINA PICKARD
