This opens with lovely scents of iris, woodland berry, tilled earth and a whiff of eucalyptus. Smooth as silk and already providing lots of pleasure, the polished palate features ripe red cherry, star anise and crushed mint alongside fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. It closes on a hint of cocoa. Drink through 2028. 92 points. Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast January 2022.
