Starts with a touch of funk. And rolls into very peppery charred cherry. Still bright and sharp. Would love to see what happens in 5 years but we couldn't resist our only two bottles.

Profoundly earthy, with a great helping of pyrazine. Restrained fruit- blackberry and raspberry, and a garden-full of freshly turned soil, herbs and spices. Great balance of acid and tannin. Rustic and compelling - curious to see where this goes in a few more years.

Fresh, zippy black currants and game. Pretty tannic still.

Floral with red and black fruits and exotic spices on the nose. Medium/plus acidity and firm tannins. Alcohol is medium with visible legs. Body is medium/plus. On the palate, notes of red cherries and cranberry with some spices and a long finish.

Floral nose, light bodied, fresh raspberry, violets, soft tannins and long spicy finish. J’adore!

Very airy and floral on the nose, with raspberry and blackberry light notes. Medium tannin, smooth wine with black cherry on the palate, some light pepper. Very smooth and easy drinking wine, but there's something about it that speaks to you. Very juicy. The length goes on for ages, and the fire in your throat reminds you to appreciate the wines complexity. Very, very good.
