There is no doubt in my mind that this might well be their finest effort so far. 96-97+ Hold until 2025 at least, as it’s structure promises to break very, very slowly. Think glacial pace. — 16 days ago
Lunch continues: - this wine smells like utopia. It tastes like unicorns eating cotton candy!? Wow elegant absolutely perfectly balanced mouthful. Maybe a urologist can fix us after this infant beauty! Soft but takes hold and goes on for a long time. Ref cherries and raspberries. All I can say is WOW! — 9 days ago

Layered and developing aromas, dark and red berries with a slight volatile lift, lavender, herbs, spice and iron.
Flavour is hitting you in waves, with a synchronized dance between the tannins and acidity, a vibrant backbone and dense presence on the palate, jogging over the finish line with confidence and good attitude. — 4 days ago
Lovely deep medium bodied wine color with a plethora of legs on the swirl. Oaky red fruit on the nose. Hints of cherry on the fore palate with a spicy bone sucking dry oak finish. — 6 days ago
