Wine SpectatorA solid, brick-house version, with roasted mesquite and alder notes providing the frame while the steeped plum, raspberry and black currant fruit core waits in reserve. A charcoal accent pins down the finish. Should open steadily with cellaring, though this will likely maintain a pleasantly rugged feel. Best from 2017 through 2025. 5,000 cases imported.
