Ripe, sweet, kirsch and flowers is what you initially notice, followed by peppery herbs and spices. Supple, silky and fresh, with a blast of luscious red fruits hits it just right. The wine is made from 34% Grenache, 33% Mourvedre and 33% Syrah. This will age and evolve quite nicely. Drink from 2023 - 2037

Take a touch of licorice, flowers, herbs, earth and kirsch and put it all together and you have the perfume. On the palate, the wine is ripe, fresh, soft and rich, with good balance, energy and length, finishing with a blast of spicy cherries, black raspberry and peppery strawberries. Drink from 2023 - 2036

Medium-bodied, sweet and lush, here you find a sensual texture to all the spicy, peppery ripe cherries and plums. The finish feels great with its layers of red berries, herbs and black pepper.

Light in color, medium bodied and open for early drinking pleasure, the wine is focused on its soft, polished, red cherry core of fruit. Not as complex as it is charming and easy to drink.

Soft, silky and fresh, the red fruits stand out, due to their purity. There is a fresh touch that gives it lift that is a good mix for the spice and pepper in the end notes. The wine is made from 34% Grenache, 33% Mourvedre and 33% Syrah.

Medium bodied, light in color, forward in style, with sweet, fresh, black raspberries, cherries, wild strawberry, ground black pepper and spice from start to finish. This is already fun in your glass. It is not a wine to make old bones, so drink it on the young side.

Fully open for business, the fresh red, bright kirsch, wild strawberry and peppery spices are on the nose and palate. Medium bodied, round and soft, this is not a wine for long term aging. So if you have a bottle, enjoy it over the next 5-7 years.

In a very modern style, which is going to turn off some tasters, others are going to enjoy the peppery, black raspberries, jam and coffee notes. The flashy style ends with a fat, oaky, ripe, kirsch finish.

Round, ripe, lush, but perhaps showing a bit too much oak, for the level black cherry and kirsch fruit on display.
