The spicy character is just great here. Instantly it adds character and complexity to the perfectly ripe, juicy, fresh, red fruits. Soft, round and inviting, the ripeness and energy in the red berries keeps on going from the mid-palate straight through to the finish. 91-93 Pts

Wet earth, spice box, tobacco, cedar and currants create the nose. On the palate, the wine is round, lush and fresh.

The darkest color ever seen at de Pez! From there it takes just a single sip to know this is a special wine. The fruits are just as dark as the hue which produces a generous, fleshy, ripe, full-bodied wine. The black cherries come in sprays before the spice, cocoa, espresso, licorice and vibrancy kicks in. Energy and elegance is here in spades. The wine blends 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. 92-94 Pts

Coming along, the wine needs more time for its crisp, fresh, cassis and red plum profile, spice, earth and tobacco can develop. At the moment, the tannins remain a bit firm. Give it time or air.
