Deep ruby. Fresh dark berries, candied flowers and cracked pepper on the mineral-tinged nose. Broad and fleshy on entry and then tighter and more lively in the middle, offering juicy cherry and blackberry flavors that pick up a smoky nuance with air. Rich yet energetic, displaying strong closing thrust and supple, slowly building tannins that sneak in late. Drink 2019-2025. —J.R.
