93 pts Wine Spectator 4/20/22
A concentrated red, offering great harmony and balance, this deftly marries racy acidity and a dense core of fine tannins to a lovely range of ripe cassis and black plum, bay leaf, espresso, minerally iron and delicate spice notes. Long and lightly chalky on the finish. Drink now through 2032.
