(AM=91-93) Very strong wood influence presently dominates the menthol, spice and dark berry fruit liqueur suffused nose. There is outstanding volume and excellent concentration to the rich, round and utterly delicious flavors that possess fine phenolic maturity to the fine but firm tannins that impart a dusty character to the wonderfully long finish where the wood reappears. This is carrying a lot of oak and it's presently enough to be frankly annoying but my score offers the benefit of the doubt that it will integrate in time as the underlying material appears to be more than sufficient. Note that this will also require extended cellaring to arrive at its peak. (AG=89) Good bright medium red. Cherry, raspberry and rose petal aromas are accented by pepper and spice notes. Supple and moderately intense, with good floral lift to the flavors of red fruits, spices and herbs. Dusty tannins are on the light side but show a slight dryness owing to the wine's modest buffering material. (WS=89) A round, fleshy style, displaying cherry, raspberry and mineral flavors. A tad exotic, with echoes of sweet fruit and oak spice on the finish. Drink now through 2020
