2017 Lothario - 92 pts from Vinous
Opaque ruby. Expressive aromas of black raspberry, boysenberry and pungent flowers are sharpened by a smoky mineral top-note. Subtly sweet and lively on the palate, offering juicy red/blue fruit preserve flavors that deepen steadily with aeration. Candied licorice and allspice notes come up on a long, sappy finish that features sneaky tannins and lingering spiciness.
