James Suckling, 96 Points 

"Aromas of black mushrooms, sweet cherries and plums with some cedar and intense lavender. Full-bodied with chewy yet polished tannins and beautiful presence at the finish. Lively and intense. Better after 2025, but already very impressive." 

Wine Enthusiast, 95 Points 

"This deep-ruby-colored wine offers aromas of black plum, dark chocolate and Earl Grey tea. On entry, it is smooth in the mouth, with flavors of mint, clove, cherry, black currant, dark chocolate and orange blossom. Vigorous tannins coat the tongue and gums and diffuse into a lingering finish." 

Wine Spectator, 91 Points 

"This plushly textured red is firmed by fine, chalky tannins, which are well-meshed with aromas and flavors of black plum reduction, violet, cured tobacco, red licorice and tarry mineral. Medium- to full-bodied, this lightly zesty version offers a touch of milled white pepper, with a lingering finish. Drink now." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Intense black-cherry color with violet hues. On the nose it expresses its complex, balsamic, aromatic intensity, in perfect balance with the fruit and the lightly toasted aromas which recall fine oak. On the palate it is smooth and full, in harmony with the fruit, with good concentrated tannins, round and with a long finish." 

Alcohol: 15%
