TASTING NOTE: The smoky leathery aromas suggest this wine suffers from some brett, which some may find hard to accept. Even so, this is a very concentrated, tannic wine, with a sweet attack cut by the firm acidity. Despite the high ripeness, there is no jamminess. The texture is svelte, and the finish, while leathery, is vibrant and long. Drinking window: 2022-2026. Score - 92 (Stephen Brook, decanter.com, Nov. 15, 2022) Price $ 24.95
