Nose full of purple flowers and licorice. Cool black fruit, lots of black pepper and graphite throughout. Good structure and balance, streaky tannins, and an intensity on the finish. Aged only in stainless steel. (Jason Wilson, Vinous, July 2020)

Blueberry, strawberry, leather, and pepper. More full-bodied and tannic than expected (even on second day).
