#66 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2018
Return to List

Exotic spice, pipe tobacco, dark-skinned berry, forest floor and a whiff of French oak all come together on this structured red. The elegant, full-bodied palate evokes Marasca cherry, black raspberry, licorice and white pepper while vibrant acidity and firm, fine-grained tannins provide balance. It's still young, with great energy and will benefit from more time in the bottle. Drink 2020–2029. Kerin O’Keefe
