Chocolate covered, black cherries, licorice, espresso, and black raspberries are readily apparent in the perfume, and on the palate. Medium-bodied, creamy, and vibrant, the fruits are a bit extracted, leaving you with a lot of juice, but a sense of dryness in the finish as well. Drink from 2027-2038. 89-91 Pts.

Dried flowers and cherries blend nicely in the nose. On the palate, the wine is round, polished sweet and energetic, with a touch of savory herbs and spearmint in the finish. Drink from 2024-2035.=

Chocolate-coated blackberries, espresso, plums and savory herbs fill the perfume and palate. Round, lush, forward and fruity, the spicy endnotes come along with ripe red pit fruits, spice and oak. So give this a few years in the cellar to fully come together. 89-91 Pts

Much better in bottle than in barrel, the medium-bodied, soft, open wine offers flowers, spice, thyme and cherries on the nose. Soft, fresh, polished and already good to go, with its fresh, plum, cocoa and black raspberry packed palate, you can enjoy this on release. Drink from 2022-2032.

Dark in color, the nose with its smoke, oak and ripe plums is easy to find. Medium-bodied, round and already open, this forward styled, easy drinking fruity wine is ready for consumption.

Fully-developed, bright, crisp, red berry character with a bit too much freshness to all of its strawberry and red plum fruits. Time is not going to add anything positive here, so if you have a bottle, drink up before the fruit continues to fade. Subsequent vintages, starting with 2015 have all been better. Drink from 2023-2025.
