Showing much better from the bottle than it did in the barrel, the bouquet is loaded with dried flowers, red fruits and savory herbal herbs. The palate is fresh, vibrant, elegant, and creamy, with a nice sweetness to the cherries, spices and a touch of chalk on the backend. This will be easy to enjoy on release and will offer pleasure at least 12 years after that. Drink from 2024-2037.

Deep in color, the wine shows its bouquet of black currants, smoke, licorice, wet earth and oak notes easily. Lush, fleshy, ripe, and round, the fruit is fleshy, sweet and richly textured, finishing with loads of ripe blackberry notes on the mid-palate and finish. Clearly, this is a step up in class since the new owners took over. 91-93 Pts

Flowers, earth, sweet cherries and tobacco wrapper scents introduce the wine. On the palate, the wine is fresh, medium-bodied, forward and already delivering its savory-edged, earthy, fresh, chewy, dark red fruits with a cedar and pepper accent. Give it just a year or two and will be fully ready to go. Drink from 2024-2036.

Medium-bodied, forward and juicy, with a great sense of purity and freshness in the fruits, bringing you length, lift, loads of sweet, ripe red pit fruits in the finish. The first vintage under the new owners, the Perrado family, the wine is already showing improvement. 91-93 Pts

Ripe, fresh and floral, with loads of juicy cassis, wet earth and dark cherries on the nose and palate. Round, and a blast of cocoa and red fruits in the finish, give this a few years before popping a cork. 90-92 Pts

There is brightness along with a leafy component in this soft, forward medium-bodied wine. Displaying sharp red fruits, this is relatively classic in nature.

Fresh, juicy cassis, earth and floral notes define the personality of this medium-bodied wine. Soft with polished black cherries and an espresso finish, this needs just a year or two of cellaring before reaching its full potential.

Medium bodied, the wine shows slightly firm tannins with an earthy, blackberry, espresso, plum and dark chocolate character. From a blend of 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, this should get even better with a few more years of age.

Slightly past its best days, still, this old-school classic offers a nice, chewy, red berry, sweet and tart character, with mildly rustic tannins and loads of earthy, forest, cigar box, tobacco, and herb notes on the nose and palate.
