Color: Garnet. Aroma: The fruit expression prevails over the floral and spicy character, with red cherry and strawberry notes. Delicate hint of daisy and black pepper. Taste: Fresh and juicy red berry fruit (cherry, strawberry, raspberry). The finish is almost balsamic with flavors of liquorice. Refreshing and fine-grained tannins.

Wine EnthusiastThis isn't just a great wine for what was a notoriously cool, wet vintage, it's quite simply a magnificent wine. Perfumed and loaded with finesse, it opens with scents of woodland berry, iris and baking spice while the vibrant, balanced palate doles out Marasca cherry, dark culinary spice, crushed herb and menthol. Refined tannins and fresh acidity provide the taut framework while a licorice note wraps around the finish. Gorgeous. Drink 2022-2034. (Cellar Selection)

Wine SpectatorA lush style, boasting black cherry, plum, licorice, tar and spice flavors. Firmly structured and needs air to open, ending on a long, complex and balanced finish. Best from 2022 through 2035. 1,500 cases made.
