Amazing Rayas - red and black cherry red clay herbal notes. Still so young but delicious to drink now.

Power and intensity. Length is unbelievable. Just goes on forever. This is serious wine. God, it's just so good.

A little bretty on the nose. Strong minerality and smoke. Strawberry, rhubarb, cranberry,pomegranate and a chalky finish. Beautiful elegance, complexity and balance. It's near it's peak. Serve with duck or pork with a light fruit sauce.
