Description

Wine Enthusiast:

Rose petal, new leather, grilled herb and balsamic aromas escape the glass. The firm palate offers sour cherry, raspberry, star anise and a tobacco note alongside youthfully assertive but refined tannins. Drink 2019–2027. Kerin O’Keefe.

Wine spectator:

Balsamic aromas and flavors of juniper, wild rosemary, eucalyptus and thyme shade the cherry core in this firm, compact red. Shows fine balance and savory length. Best from 2020 through 2035. 525 cases made.

Characteristics Wine with a nice bright colour and captivating nuances that endure over time. An ever intense bouquet, rich and lingering with hints of licorice, mint and sensations of ripe fruit. With time, estery sensations develop with hints recalling resin and sweet spices. Full flavor, marked acidity and tannic weave which evolve and balance out with maturation. Good ageing prospects.
Pairing Excellent with roasts, game
