Violet hue, rich, lively sweet black fruits. Soft and juicy with cherry and menthol. Lovely concentration with a touch of tobacco.

Rich and powerful, with plenty of grip to the well-spiced flavors of blackberry, dried blueberry and dark plum. Dense and juicy midpalate, opening up with pepper and chocolate notes on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 3,000 cases made.

Score: 92/100

Heaps of prunes and black fruit enveloping the nose and palate. Sweetness mingles with spice in a swirling melange of complexity, supported by crisp acidity and structured tannins. This is truly delicious now but could age well for 10 years and more.

Score: One of the 75 Best Wines Tasted in 2016

A bit reserved, with a solid core of plum, raspberry and blackberry compote notes, underscored by light, briary grip. A jolt of licorice snap adds verve to the finish. Best from 2021 through 2041.

Score: 92 points

Wonderfully precise with cedar and tobacco. Succulent blackberry, raisin and fruitcake. Complex mature balance and very long.

Deep crimson red with a miniscule garnet rim. Initially shy on the nose, but opens with plenty of complexity and drive. Quite savoury and deep nuances, liquorice, spiced plum, underlying stoney minerality and compote of dark and red fruits. The palate flows in a beautiful smooth, tender way, energizing the mouth and sparking off an intense bite and tight clench towards the finish. The aftertaste is long, mellow and immensely satisfying.

Spirity with flighty adolesence fruit character.  Muscular and unready but very good concentration and structure.  Will be very good.

2010 tasting note year

Very deep, opaque, thin crimson rim; vibrant aromas, still open, youthful, amazingly in its first bloom of youth; rich, full of puppy fat, ripe gravelly tannins, rich and opulent, still raw but should re-emerge as a very fine wine in ten years plus.

Score: 3/4 Stars
