Red fruit, herbs, spice and a slight touch of cocoa get the wine going. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, crisp and fresh with chewy textures, cocoa, and red fruits on the backend. This is going to be quite easy to enjoy on release. 2024-2035.

Red cherries, currants, and plums, with a hint of sage, and cocoa create the nose. Medium-bodied, round, fruity, and creamy in texture, the finish serves up its blend of blackberries, dark cherries, and herbs with a bit of bitterness, a cocoa powder that comes in at the end easily. Drink from 2023-2032.

Medium-bodied, round, fresh and juicy, with ripe dark fruits on the nose and palate. Give it just a year or two and enjoy it over the next decade or longer. I was surprised the wine was 14.5 % ABV because there was no sensation of heat or jam. 87-89 Pts

Medium-bodied with an interesting nose of red cherry and orange peel, the wine is soft, chewy, spicy, fresh, medium-bodied, forward and delivers a hint of cocoa in the end note. This is going to be quite easy to enjoy on release.
