SKU #1519944 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Glistening scarlet. Assertively perfumed red fruit liqueur, cherry, exotic spice and succulent herb aromas show superb definition and a subtle medicinal quality. Shows very good depth and velvety texture, offering sappy raspberry, medicinal cherry and candied lavender flavors that betray no rough edges. Lingers with outstanding tenacity on the finish, which features rounded tannins and resonating florality. Made from a blend of wines that are made from air-dried grapes from the 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 vintages. Note that this wine is bottled in a 500mL format. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2021)

Outer quote mark This is a very unique style of wine that’s hard to classify. With a certain percentage of grapes treated in the appassimento style, there’s a dessert element to the bottling, with potent aromas of raspberry jam, rosewater and cola on the nose. But the palate zips with acidity and dry, firm tannins, offering sharp thyme and other herbal elements. I’m not sure what to call it, except worthy of attention. *Editors’ Choice* (MK) Inner quote mark (1/2021)
