Creamy, supple, red fruits, soft-textures, and leafy herbs form the core of the wines personality. On the palate, there is freshness, softness, and sweetness to the fruits. While you can drink this with pleasure on release, it will also age nicely for a few years as well. Drink from 2026-2040. 90-92 Pts.

Blanding smoke, cocoa, espresso and red fruits produces the nose. The palate is even better with its refined, sweet black cherry and espresso notes, which get better once the hint of chocolate on the backend kicks in. Drink from 2024-2034.

Flowers, cocoa dusted cherries, spice and currants appear with little effort in the nose. Lush, soft and fresh with sweet, dark, red pit fruits and chalky tannins end the experience. Showing much better in the bottle than it did in the barrel, while you can drink this with pleasure on release, it will also age nicely. Drink from 2024-2038.

Cocoa dusted cherries and currants on the nose and on the soft, medium-bodied, elegant, palate create the wine. Fresh, supple and easy to drink, this will be just great to enjoy as soon as it hits the stores. 88-90 Pts

Soft, fresh and earthy, you can already find notes of smoke, herbs, tobacco leaf, red berries. Medium-bodied, forward, early-drinking with a nice character, this will be quite nice on release and will get better with a year or two of cellaring. Drink from 2023-2032.

Smoky, dark cherries with a bit of cocoa and tobacco on the nose. The wine is soft, medium-bodied and already easy to drink, with more of those smoky cherries in the fruit and earth filled, round finish. You can enjoy this young, probably on release. 89-91 Pts

A touch of espresso, cocoa and red fruits hits the nose. Soft, round and approachable, with loads of sweetness in the fruit to accompany the oak, which should dissipate with a few years of aging.
