Deep shimmering ruby. Pungent red berry preserve and garrigue aromas are energized by a mineral flourish and a spicy suggestion of white pepper. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering appealing sweet cherry and raspberry flavors that show excellent depth and clarity. Closes smooth and subtly tannic, displaying even tannins, a touch of candied lavender and impressive length. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, December 2019)

Loved this...earthy, dried fruit, surprisingly light in color and alcohol. Was better over time in the glass. Extremely well balanced.

15.5/20 (87/100)

Корица, кардамон и укроп. Замша, кожа, сушеные чёрные ягоды. В целом довольно строгое и очень аккуратное вино, но без особых ярких ощущений.

Nose is Mossy, wet leaves, vanilla/cinnamon, cherry, plum & hint of potting soil. Tastes of cherry, earthy soil/stone & vanilla. I would love to drink this every day.

Yes!! 💃🏻🕺. Isn’t it just the highlight of the day when you get that wine that you cannot leave alone? Spicy cigar box and peat extracts dripped in dark dried fruit of aalbes, currant, pie cherry and tart strawberry. And what a perfect match with Tammy’s soy ponzu steak bowl! Lifted it into orbit!! 😋

Excellent. Great nose of dark blue berries and deep red cherry. Spice up front, complex in the finish. Just how we like it. It disappeared fast. Proof to a good wine.

2010 vintage. Decanted for about 3 hours. Cherry nose. Slight earth flavors with cherry and a licorice finish.
