90 pts Vinous/Josh Raynolds Oct 2017
(aged in a combination of new and used French and American oak barrels) Vivid ruby. Aromas of cherry pit, black currant and pipe tobacco, lifted by a peppery element. Broad and appealingly sweet, offering juicy black and blue fruit and spicecake flavors plus a touch of mocha. Closes smooth and spicy, showing very good cling and round, even tannins.
