Vibrant, black cherries, flowers, spice, and plums pop with little effort. The soft, lush, mineral-driven palate is vibrant, with an oaky-edge at the moment, so give it a year or two, and it should come together nicely. You can enjoy this in its youth, as well as age it for more complexities. 2026-2038. 91-93 Pts.

Deeply colored, the wine is soft, supple, fresh, and refined, with layers of lifted, sweet, fruits, toasty oak, mint leaf, and cocoa, with the essence of crushed rocks, and stones coming in at the end of the finish. You can enjoy this in its youth, as well as age it for more complexities. 2026-2042. 92-94 Pts.

Espresso, dark chocolate, smoked herbs, black cherries and black raspberries for the core of the nose. On the palate, the wine is spicy with espresso accents to red fruit on the medium-bodied, fresh, polished palate. This will be easy to enjoy in its youth, yet it should also age up to a decade or more. Drink from 2024-2036.

It is still a bit oaky on the nose at this point, once past the oak you find a medium-bodied palate chocked of chocolate-coated cherries, licorice, spice and espresso. There is a burnt coffee edge to the finish here that could dissipate with a few years in the bottle. Drink from 2023-2034.

Smoked fruits, chocolate, flowers and spice create the perfume. Medium-bodied, soft, polished and fresh, with a silky, red berry, spice, coffee bean and mocha toned finish, this is going to be quite nice with just 3-5 years of aging. 90-92 Pts

Dark with purple accents, the nose of flowers, licorice, spice, smoke and dark red pit fruits resonate. Rich, round, lush and plush, with silky tannins and a blast of sweet chocolate covered fruits taste and feel great. 92-94 Pts

Blackberries, cherries, flowers, herbs and espresso form the core of this medium-bodied, elegant, fresh, sweet, supple and silky wine. This is already showing well now and will only get better with a bit of age.
