||Vinous Antonio Galloni 94|
| This brooding, purple-hued Syrah offers concentrated blackberry flavor edged by layers of sage, underbrush and graphite. It's firm and stately on the palate, with brisk acidity and taut, penetrating tannins. Still a bit closed it should yield greater depth and complexity from 2021 through 2035.
