2018 Lothario - 92 pts from Vinous

Bril­liant ruby red. Smoke accent­ed cher­ry, cas­sis, and licorice aro­mas are com­ple­ment­ed by suc­cu­lent herb and flo­ral notes. Chewy and focused on the palate, offer­ing con­cen­trat­ed dark berry, flo­ral pastille, and fruit­cake fla­vors that flesh out as the wine opens up. Steadi­ly build­ing tan­nins add grip to a very long, gen­tly chewy fin­ish that leaves vanil­la and can­died laven­der notes behind. 92 pts
