2018 kaamos - 92 pts from Vinous

Opaque ruby. Deep-pitched cher­ry-vanil­la, cas­sis, and licorice aro­mas are com­ple­ment­ed by espres­so and woodsmoke flour­ish­es. Shows very good depth and breadth to the dense­ly packed black and blue fruit, can­died vio­let, cola, and spice­cake qual­i­ties: a pep­pery nuance builds with aer­a­tion. Seam­less and fleshy on the long, sap­py fin­ish, which fea­tures pli­ant tan­nins and lin­ger­ing vanil­la and spice notes. 92 pts
