2010. Had this in a blind tasting, it was surprisingly fruit-forward and approachable.

Built to last, this infant had everything placed correctly; loads of sweet tannins, juicy acidity and fruit for balance. Very clever oak handling let the chalky minerality shine on the lengthy finish. Best from 2020.

Bordeaux in body and style. Meaty but balanced. Smooth tannins are only nod to CA. Lovely.

Sexy wine. Perfectly ripe, towards dried fruit- plum, roasted red bell pepper, kalamata olive, with some herbal undertones. Long on palate, pleasant tannins, fruit and red licorice.
