Stunning dense blackberries w a smoky finish. One of the best wines I’ve drank in a while. Age worthy.

Library nose, soft tannins, tastes older than 2017 in 2020.

Hefty full body but well balanced and medium acidity.

Inky blackberries and violets and iodine, with hardly a rough edge to be found. A perfect dinner party wine, with delicious fruit, some interesting notes, and a hefty body but nothing challenging. Easy to pair and easier to drink.

Tasting some black currant with defined tannins, perhaps some leather as well. Despite some spice, it seems a fairly delicate palate with a smooth finish

Floral nose with a hint of pomegranate and nail polish. The mouthfeel is zippy, not too acidic though; a hint of kirsch and pencil lead. Probably needs to be served with food.
