Blueberries and earthy on the nose. Hmm. Blueberry Earth. Wasn't that a 60s band? Lol. Ahem. Delicate yet dark. Light tannins, ripe fruits. Quite nice, and I'm sure it'll open up nicely. — 2 days ago
2019 black raspberries, black tea, sappy core of black fruit buried tannins complex finish still young — 7 days ago
This wine is deep ruby with developing and robust notes of blackberry preserves, crushed blueberry, dried prune, fig paste, violet, cherry blossom, black licorice, anise, cedar, nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, pencil shavings, leather, tobacco, and forest floor.
On the palate this wine is dry. It has medium acidity, a full body, high alcohol, smooth, fine-grain tannins, and medium(+) intensity in flavors consistent with the nose. It’s bold, structured, perfumed…
With a long, elegant finish and impeccable balance, this wine is top-notch-delish! C’est magnifique!

Very surprising, great wine, tasteful for a white. Floral with explosion of different tastes. — 16 days ago
This wine is maturing nicely, maintaining its fruit and acidity as the tannins mellow. Loads of blackberry, black cherry, black pepper, licorice, and plum and is now developing tertiary notes of leather, forest floor and dried plum. Quite long on the finish with some fine wet stone at the close. — 3 days ago
