2019 sisu - 95 pts from Vinous

The 2019 Sisu tempts the imag­i­na­tion with a dusty bou­quet that mix­es haunt­ing­ly dark flo­rals, exot­ic spice, hints of sweet smoke and dried black cher­ries. This is racy and sleek, with a seam­less wave of ripe red and blue fruits that smooth over the palate. The acid­i­ty wins the day, adding a zesty, near­ly mouth­wa­ter­ing qual­i­ty through the fin­ish, as the 2019 tapers off long, spicy and potent, yet remark­ably fresh. This is almost too easy to like already, yet beau­ti­ful­ly bal­anced for a steady evo­lu­tion. This is a love­ly ren­di­tion of Sisu, a blend of 50% Syrah, 25% Grenache and 25% Mourvèdre that spends twen­ty months refin­ing in 40% new oak. 95 pts
