Deep red fruits, smoke, vanilla bean, spice box, fresh herbs and olives open up with a bit of coaxing, Fresh with just a bit of polish in the texture, the wine is elegant, bright and soft tannins with sweet, red, peppery fruits in the finish. This is showing a little bit better than it did last year.

Full bodied and still showing its espresso tones from its youth, this is going to take some time before its fun to drink. The concentration is there, as is the fresh, black fruit, smoke, vanilla bean, spice box, herbs and red berries, although it takes some coaxing to open. Refined, fresh and with a bit of polish in the texture, the wine is elegant, with ripe tannins and peppery, red fruits in the finish

Medium bodied, refined, fresh and lively, the floral element stands out, allowing the sweet, juicy, peppery kirsch to shine through.

Light in color, medium bodied, forward and perfect for early drinking, the sweet, ripe, red berries also carry a bright, even tart quality. With this wine, you can look forward to a crisp, racy, almost nervous note.

Flowers, smoke, thyme, herbs and red fruits pop quite easily, On the palate, the wine is medium bodied, silky, soft, plush and delicious. The sweet cherries are fresh and vibrant, with a touch of herbs and spice that come on strong at the end.

Deep ruby in color, right off the bat you find truffle, flowers, spice, pepper, vanilla accents and herbs. From there you discover a medium bodied, polished, refined, sensuously textured wine with pure cherries and a hint of licorice. With tannins waiting to be resolved, give this beauty 5-7 years in the cellar and this really be a knockout!

Rich, round, lush and sexy, with overtones of espresso, vanilla, smoke. kirsch, flowers and sweet, dark cherries. It will take a few more years for the oak to fade and for more secondary nuances to emerge.

This is just super! Already starting to drink in its sweet spot, the wine is medium bodied, soft, fresh, elegant and supple. In character you find earthy, leafy, forest floor and red fruit all over the place. The fruit is soft and sweet, with a peppery, black raspberry, spicy leaning.

With a rich, ruby hue, the wine sports black pepper, truffle, flowers, dark red fruits and touch of vanilla on the backend. Probably close to mature, this is drinking great! Silky, exotic, fresh, vibrant cherries herbs, pepper and earth carry through on the palate and in the finish.
