Polished, deep dark juice. Mocha and blueberries. Well structured, big but pretty. Lots of finesse. Kiwi and red currants on the finish. Just getting better and better. This stuff is dynamite.

2011 vintage can still wait a couple of years ... It's a fascinating deep ruby red and opens with strong spicy parfums (to be mitigated by the time), persistent.

For a wine so young, this opens up quite well. Dark plum, blackberry and bitter dark chocolate. Ripe, modern and polished.

Lots of cedar on the nose, a little tight right now. The tannins are well integrated and fine. The back palate shows off some leather and red fruits.

2014 pre-arrival. Will be an impressive wine as all fruit from Superiere is used. No Superiere in 2014. Ultra black fruit right now that shows real life and freshness with a firm punch of tannin. Blackberry, plum, mocha with good balance
