Flowers, licorice, black cherries and espresso pop with no effort in the nose. The palate is even better with layers of fresh, sweet, crisp red fruits, touch of salt, plums and a hint of chocolate on the backend. Drink from 2024-2036.

Black cherries and roses with a touch of chocolate-dusted, black raspberries create the nose. Medium-bodied, with a bright, salty, fresh, crisp, savory edge to the red pit fruit and licorice notes tasted in the finish. Drink from 2024-2034. 89-91

Perhaps it is the strong mineral essence that gives this wine its unique character. You find it in the nose, which also offers flowers, red pit fruits, and smoke. The wine is round, and polished, and will easily seduce you with its layers of fresh red fruits, salty tannins, and mildly savory edge in the finish. You can drink this young, or age it for more complexity. Drink from 2023-2037.

Ripe black and red pit fruits are packaged with crushed rocks, stones, salty tannins, spice and savory herbs. Round and seductive, with a fresh, savory, chewy finish. Give this 2-4 years before pulling a cork and enjoy it for 12-15 years after that. 91-93 Pts

Silky-textured, sweet and vibrant, there is a gorgeous sense of purity here to the seductive, dark red pit fruits with their chocolate edge. The finish feels just great due to the soft, polished tannins and all of those sweet, ripe, silky fruits and the touch of salt from the minerality in the endnote. This will drink well young, and it will even better with a few years of age. Drink from 2023-2035.

Seductive, silky, medium-bodied, finesse driven, fresh and fruity, the red berries are clean, pure and feel just great. The tannins are soft, refined and should produce a wine that will drink well young, and even better with a few years of age. 91-93 Pts

The sense of minerality is apparent with the initial sniff before finding flowers, red with black plums and cherries in the nose. Silky, smooth, fresh, elegant and with layers of sweet, soft, ripe fruits, chalk, licorice, pepper and a light touch of oak, the wine exudes energy, crushed rocks and red pit fruit from start to finish.

Lush, round, forward, medium/full bodied, with a dark, juicy plum, licorice, black cherry and earthy character. Fresh, plush and polished, this will be better with a few years of age. 90-92 Pts

Medium/full bodied, forward and loaded with ripe, soft, round, fresh and slightly stony red fruits, this is already lovely to taste.

Deep in color, the wine offers licorice, crushed stone and dark cherries from start to finish. On the palate you also find polished, silky dark, red fruits with more of that crushed rock sensations. This is the best and sadly the penultimate vintage for the owner Patrick Leon, who recently passed away.

Owned by Patrick Leon, the wine is medium/full bodied, showing a stony edge to the floral and red berry fruit. Give it a few years to soften, flesh out and gain additional complexities.

Fresh, earthy, soft, round, open, herb and spice-tinged red fruits show easily in this ready-to-drink, medium-bodied, plummy charmer.

Medium-bodied, bright, fresh, stony red berries come alive with a touch of thyme, underbrush, cherry and dark cocoa in the round, soft, polished, crisp finish. This is drinking about as good as it is going to get.

At full-maturity, the wine is earthy, smoky, round, lush, soft and still fresh, with its dark red pit fruits, licorice, cocoa and stony, mid-palate finish. I'd opt for drinking this over the next few years before it starts its gentle decline.

Fully mature, or quite close to it, the wine is soft, smooth, easy to drink to drink and like. With its medium body and focus on fresh, ripe black cherries, earth and thyme, this is drinking right now in its sweet spot.
