Violet, forest berry, cedar and spice aromas come to the forefront on this perfumed red. Agile and delicious, the lithe, full-bodied palate brings home succulent red cherry, raspberry compote and baking spice while taut, smooth tannins give it a silky texture. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Already accessible, it will also age well for several years or longer. 95 points. Kerin O’Keefe.
