Deeply colored, the wine opens with black plums and cherries, oak, wet earth, anise and flowers. Medium-bodied, soft, silky and polished, with a nice sweetness to the elegant fruits and freshness in the finish. This will be even better with a few years of aging. 89-91 Pts

Black raspberries, herbs and spice with touches of espresso, wet earth and spices kick off the perfume. Medium-bodied, fresh, soft, vibrant and elegant, the sweet, ripe, red fruits really come through on the palate and in the finish. This is showing much nicer from the bottle than it did from the barrel. Drink from 2023-2034.

A light touch of oak, soft, silky textures, and ripe, sweet plums with hints of cocoa fill out this wine on the palate. Medium-bodied and forward, give it a few years in the cellar for further development.
