"Very expressive and beautifully balanced, this is all in the details, from the palate-caressing texture to the vibrant acidity, finely meshed with flavors of black raspberry, plum, wild strawberry, candied citrus peel, honey and ground spice, accented by rich hints of espresso, treacle and pastis. Drink now through 2025. –AN" (WS)

"($299) (ID 212020; LLSNRK): Light onion skin color. Fresh pear, strawberry and white peach scents are sharpened by notes of orange pith and smoky minerality. Juicy, tightly wound orchard and red fruit flavors show a refreshingly bitter quality and pick up weight and spiciness with air. Shows excellent clarity and power on the finish, which echoes the mineral and orange notes. Seems quite young now but highly promising." (VM)

"This is an onion-skin-colored wine, ripe and showing some maturity as well as rich red and citrus fruits. It is beautifully balanced, the pure, crisp fruit elegantly integrated into the lightly mineral texture. This stylish bottling is ready to drink." (WE)
