#41 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2019
Return to List

Cedar, pipe tobacco, black-skinned fruit and balsamic aromas shape the nose along with French oak and iris. Full bodied and elegant, the savory palate has nice weight, doling out mature Marasca cherry, black plum, espresso, orange zest and spice while fresh acidity keeps it balanced. It's still young, with tight-knit tannins, and needs time to come into its own. Drink 2023–2036. Kerin O’Keefe
