Cranberry, blackberry and black cherry ring loud and clear, with appealing wet-stone minerality in the background. The fruit flavors are so front loaded and intense that it’s easy to miss the inherent angularity and overall finesse of the wine. It’s structured and fine-tuned for aging.

“A pretty nose of redcurrants, plums, sour cherries, dried herbs and stones. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins and fresh acidity. Supple and velvety with spicy character. Succulent finish. Drink or hold.”
– James Suckling (July, 2021)
“The earthy aromatics really impress, alongside a core of black raspberry and black tea. This comes off ripe and plump once on the mouth, with red rose water and black truffle accents, as the length and viscosity add depth. Complex and delicious to savor now, enjoy this beautiful wine over the next twelve plus years.”

Deep crimson. Vibrant red and dark berry, candied lavender, cola and allspice qualities on the expansive nose. Juicy and energetic in style, offering intense Chambord, cherry cola and spicecake flavors that smoothly marry depth to vivacity. Shows fine definition and spicy thrust on the long, subtly tannic finish, which echoes the red fruit and floral notes.
