Wine Spectator A dense, well-knit red, offering finely sculpted tannins and rich cherry compote, forest floor, baking spice, date and singed orange peel flavors, set on a silky palate. Long and aromatic, with hints of mocha, citrus zest, spice and smoke echoing on the chewy finish. Drink now through 2027. 1,200 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastStewed prune, blue flower, Asian spice and a whiff of oak come together on this. The dense palate offers raisin, blackberry extract, tobacco, vanilla and licorice alongside firm fine-grained tannins. Drink 2017 through 2024.
