Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Aromatically alive with scents of purple grapes and plums with a hint of spice and brioche. Full-bodied flavors of plum and boysenberry with a hint of spice and smoky oak in the background. Juicy and vibrant with firm tannins. A textbook SLH wine.
"Deep red. Spicy red berries and fresh flowers on the smoke-accented nose. Sappy, appealingly sweet raspberry and cherry flavors show good clarity and are given spicy lift by a note of white pepper. A subtle bitter chocolate nuance comes up on the clinging finish, which is shaped by dusty, fine-grained tannins" 90 Points - Vinous Media.
