2019 Lothario - 94 pts from Vinous

Dark and brood­ing in the glass, the 2019 Lothario slow­ly opens with an array of dried rose­mary and sage off­set by crushed ashen stone and a core of dried black cher­ries. This flows like liq­uid, vel­vety, rich and sup­ple, with a fleshy wave of ripe red and black fruits per­fect­ly bal­anced by brisk acid­i­ty. Near­ly seam­less and quite pol­ished in feel, the 2019 embraces the palate with a web of fine tan­nins and wild blue­ber­ry nuances. Cit­rus hints punc­tu­ate the expe­ri­ence quite nice­ly. The Lothario is a blend of 59% Mourvèdre and 41% Grenache. 94 pts
