The newly renamed vineyard, which still remains a bit confusing to me is deeply colored in the glass. The wine is plush, concentrated, opulent, and layered with dark plums, chocolate, licorice, and dark pit fruits. The finish, with its creamy textures, freshness and length is simply great. The wine comes from vines on the slopes of their vineyard and is produced blending 80% Merlot with 20% Cabernet Franc. Drink from 2027-2045. 93-95 Pts.

Fruit cake, blackberry, plum, spice and licorice nuances create the perfume. Medium-bodied, soft, silky, sweet and fresh with core of ripe, supple, sultry fruits accompanied by licorice, espresso, cocoa and a touch of savory herbs. There is a good sense of purity and elegance found here. 92-94 Pts

Elegant, soft, sweet and fresh, the wine is medium-bodied, and loaded with spicy fruits, licorice, coffee and cocoa. There is good energy and fruit in the finish. Give it a few years in the cellar to allow it to all come together.
