    "Linear and bordering on racy, with currant, wild cherry and mineral flavors. Shows the wild side of the appellation, yet stays persistent and long on the finish. Best from 2016 to 2027."

    "Good full red. Sexy aromas and flavors of raspberry, smoke, roast coffee, earth, minerals and subtle spices. Suave, silky and fairly broad; full but with a light touch, thanks to superb vinosity. Tactile yet utterly smooth wine with a savory, salty mineral character and a strong impression of extract. Finishes with superb length and energy."
