2017 noir - 92 pts from Vinous

Inky vio­let. Spice-accent­ed cher­ry, cas­sis and licorice scents, along with a smoky min­er­al nuance that emerges as the wine opens up. Fleshy black­ber­ry and bit­ter cher­ry fla­vors are braced by a core of zesty acid­i­ty and turn sweet­er on the back half. Smooth­ly blends depth and ener­gy and fin­ish­es smoky and long, fea­tur­ing plush tan­nins and lin­ger­ing dark fruit and licorice qualities.
