Amazingly plush fruited, blackcurrent, raspberry, violet, widely spread on the palette, licorice, a bit of sarsaparilla, spice, ripe pillowy tannin with great length. Great freshness given the spread of vintages in this.

Inky purple all the way to the rim - violets, tapenade, black cherry and plum, mineral, fine tannin and long finish 💥😍😋

Hard to describe how satisfying a wine this is....super smooth and silky, tons of dark fruit and big structure..... great balance...If there was a doppelgänger for SQN this is it

Exuberant nose and layers upon layers of dark fruit. Good structure and acidity. An amazing “2nd” wine...

The best years of this wine are ahead of it. Loads of sweet baking spice, black and purple fruits. Thick. Black. Even getting a bit of savory on the finish which is was not what I got last year. Definitely more to the sweeter, fruit rich side but a step and a half up from the last year. This wine IMO can hold as long as the flagship. And it now makes me really REALLY want to open up one of the HD's!!

Structured, yet very well balanced. Lots of black fruit framed by cool menthol tones.
