An array of red and white flowers, cherries, plums, black raspberries and strawberries pop in the perfume, as soon as the wine is poured.

The wine blends 60% Merlot with 40% Cabernet Franc. Drink from 2025-2045.

Elegant, fresh, vibrant, and long, the nose entices you with its flowers, sweet red fruits, wet earth, crushed stone, espresso and dark chocolate fragrance. The purity in the fruit, along with its silky textures, and layers of sweet, lifted, red fruits hits all the right notes. This is refined hedonism at its best. Give it at least 6-8 years in the cellar and enjoy over the following 2 decades with ease. 95-97 Pts

It is difficult to decide what I like best, the opulent, polished, luxuriously textured fruits, or the show, floral, licorice, chocolate and dark red pit fruits on the nose and palate. Fortunately, you do not have to decide because here, you have plenty of both! The velvety finish leaves you with multiple layers of sweet, pure cherries, black plums, earth and thyme. Drink from 2024-2047.

Lilies, dark cocoa, truffle and juicy, black plum notes pop right from the glass. On the palate, the wine is rich, sweet and round. Inky ruby with purple accents in color, the wine offers a tannic backbone, which requires time in the cellar to clarify the freshness in the lush, fruity character. Like many establishments this year, close to 50% of the vineyard was devastated by the frost.

Luscious, fat, rich and concentrated, this velvety-textured wine has ripe, soft fruits and a smoky, espresso bean, licorice and black cherry-filled, earthy finish. This project, headed by Peter Sisseck and Silvio Denz, is really starting to take off.

Medium/full bodied, supple, sensuous, lush fruits with ripe, polished tannins in a forward style allow this wine to be enjoyed in its youth. With the concentration of raw materials, this will also allow for aging for at least 15-20 years.
