This 92 point rated wine was described as "sleek, lithe and inviting, with juicy cherry, black cherry and gentle spice flavors that glide quickly over polished tannins into a long and vivid finish. This has presence, harmony, depth and persistence. Best from 2016 through 2022. 7,000 cases made." —Harvey Steinman of Wine Spectator
