93 pts, “Displays expansive, spice-tinged redcurrant, cherry and blood orange scents, along with suggestions of pungent flowers and fennel. Bright and penetrating in the mouth, offering intense, mineral-laced red berry, citrus pith and honeysuckle flavors that smoothly blend concentration and litheness. Finishes impressively long and precise, with the blood orange and mineral notes…” — JR, Vinous Media, 7/2022 (2021 vintage).
