Roasted red fruits, plums and flowers create the perfume. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, fresh and savory with loads of sweet, ripe, salty, currants and fresh, spicy plums with a nice hit of spearmint on the backend. Drink from 2023-2040.

Medium-bodied, fresh and savory with a solid core of ripe, soft, polished, supple fruits on the mid-palate and in the savory, spearmint and spice-toned finish. This will be just great to taste on release and over the next decade. 89-91 Pts

Espresso, smoke, chocolate, raspberries and flowers create the nose. On the palate the wine is soft, polished, fruity and should be just great to enjoy with only a year or two in the cellar.

Round, forward, polished and just a bit oaky on the nose. The medium-bodied, already open wine offers its ripe dark cherries licorice, coffee and cocoa with little effort. You can enjoy this easily over the next decade.
