Quite bold and fresh. Soft texture meets intense presentation.

Very, very soft tannins. Overripe fruits. Not bad fruit. Concentrated. Round and enjoyable.

Deep and dark ruby red. Quite a tight nose with just a little bit of dust, dark cassis, black cherries and a little stinky. Rounded attack with moderate tannins (7/10) that hit the mid palate and medium bodied. Elegant with floral notes, dark fruits, black cherries and currants. A little bit of heat that diminished around an hour in. Long finish. Needed the decant. Drink till 2025.

Lovely. Definitely one of their more Bordeaux like vintages with hints of cedar, spice and earth and just when you think "where's the fruit"?, it appears gracefully with just a hint of sweetness.

40th bday for a Cali can lover. Hint of eucalyptus, so smooth with refinement, and pure love in a glass.
