Super dark garnet red. Dark cocoa on the nose with red plums, red currants and mushrooms. Moderate plus acidity with moderate tannins (5.5/10). Ripe on the palate with red tart cherries and strawberries. A bit tart and very dry with the medium plus finish. Definite potential but too young right now. Drink from 2019 till 2025. 87+

Strong core of minerality and crushed rocks in this wine. Tart brambly fruit, smoke, slightly herbaceous/tobacco, subtle oak. Crisp, textural and highlighted by grainy tannins running the palate. Day 2: much more meaty, leather, graphite, cocoa/coffee. Way more umami/savory

Boysenberries, road tar, smoke, vanilla. It's actually much better than I just made it sound. #toomanyglassesofsherrytocare

Color of red purple with brown note on the rim. Nose is seducing with some nice ripe sweet cherry, sweet oak, some strawberries, and a bit sweet bbq. First sip is powerful tannins. When it fades away, nice structure surface. Flavored like ripe cherry, strawberries, sweet oak, and vanilla are all there. Very chewy. Aftertaste is long and complex. Really good one.
