Wine Spectator – November 2020 A rich, ripe and layered wine, with velvety flavors of steeped currant, plum and spice that fan out nicely, while racier apple wood, bramble and iron notes course underneath. The finish is still packed together, showing details of sassafras and licorice root peeking out. Will need some time to unfurl fully. Best from 2022 through 2038. 800 cases made. – J.M.
