This is beautifully lilting in preciously defined aromas of rose petal and wild strawberry. From there, it's all subtlety and ethereal elegance. The wine is restrained, nurtured in a basket of nutmeg and graham cracker, as well as freshly packed mushroomy earth. This wine is a stunner right out of the glass, but is sure to continue its fine course through 2022–2025. *Editors' Choice* (VB)
Vivid red. Smoky raspberry and blood orange aromas, with sexy Asian spice and floral notes adding complexity. Offers gently sweet red fruit and rose pastille flavors that put on weight with air and pick up a subtle cola quality. Finishes spicy and very long, with silky tannins gaining strength. Powerful yet lithe and balanced to reward patience. (ST)
Here the nose runs more toward pomegranate and dark raspberry along with hints of sandalwood, spice and the same exotic tea nuances. The mouth feel of the medium weight flavors is lusher and rounder with a highly seductive texture, all wrapped in a delicious, accessible and attractively persistent finish. I like the balance and while this doesn't have the sheer depth of the Allen, it is certainly quite good as well.
