About the Wine
91+ points, Vinous
"Dark red. Reticent but pure aromas of redcurrant, smoke and crushed herbs. Distinctly tight and a bit lean but opens out on the back end, showing good breadth and juicy persistence, with the tannins surprisingly pliant. These 2014s spent two years in the same barrels prior to being assembled for the bottling."
