Medium-bodied with a bit too much oak in the nose. Still, there is a lot to like here with all of its ripe, vibrant, sweet cherries, plums and dark chocolate that are on full-display in the round-textured, fruity finish. This is a nice step up from previous vintages, which is nice to see. Drink from 2023-2037.

Served blind, I was knocked out once the label was revealed as this was showing just great. Lighter in style and body, there was more than enough red cherries, coffee grounds, truffle and dried flowers to make this interesting. The tannins were soft and polished, leaving you with herbs, olives and red plums in the finish.
