Aromas of rose, woodland berry, leather and forest floor mingle with whiffs of camphor on this fragrant, medium-bodied red. The elegantly structured, balanced palate has nice tension fueled by bright acidity and iron notes that accompany ripe cherry, raspberry, licorice and a hint of baking spice. Taut fine-grained tannins provide firm, polished support. Drink 2022–2030. . —K.O.

94 Points

CELLAR SELECTION; Exotic spice, rose, eucalyptus and red-berry aromas are front and center on this perfumed red. It’s loaded with finesse and tension, delivering Marasca cherry, cranberry, licorice and clove while a mineral note evoking rusty iron (and that’s a good thing) adds depth to the finish. Firm acidity and tightly knit fine-grained tannins provide structure and balance. Drink 2021–2033. —K.O.
