What a great find this producer was for us. This is day two, and it’s still upright. Ripe nose of solid black fruits. On the palate, the transition is seamless. Excellent density, coupled with rich maraschino cherries. In our opinion, this will cellar for many years, but best drunk now while in its prime.

Impossible to tell that this is made by a convict.
The nose ticks all the right boxes. Rose petals combine with toasty oak to shape the experience. Palate displays soft cherries, balsamic reduction, with hints of tobacco. Finishes with sweetness and perfect acidity. Our only bottle... sniff.

Muted nose with a slither of coconut. Lovely presentation on the palate. Displays butterscotch, caramel and green peppers. Relatively soft and round on the palate. Perfectly balanced with delicate sweetness, and moderate acidity. Light oak treatment completes what is a strong showing. — 3 days ago
Purchased this because I was nudged by @H.B Treadway, and all the ratings hype.
Citrus and zesty nose. On the palate, it certainly reminds me of it’s French counterpart. Not sure if this wine sees oak - it’s not perceptible. Stones and rocks combine with crisp white fruits. It’s a well made wine, but not in the style that we prefer. Jayson SB is a similar price, but is far better (more tropical and open-knit). If you like your SB’’s taught, and tilting to the dry side, this may be for you. — 4 days ago
