This harmonious, full-bodied wine has an intense ruby red hue that, with age, changes to a deep garnet. Intense and fruity on the nose, it shows aromas of tobacco and liquorice with undertones of red fruit jam, dry roses, and violets. On the palate it is dry, warm, and supple with sweet and rounded tannins. Overall a well-balanced wine with a long finish.

Wine SpectatorA rich, dense version, with power and beefy tannins supporting the cherry, wild herb, eucalyptus and tea notes. This is tight and bursting with latent energy, so give it more time. Shows excellent length and resonance on the finish, which hints at the ultimate potential here. Best from 2018 through 2036. 692 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastLayered fragrances recall rose, violet, perfumed berry, leather, tilled earth and baking spices. The delineated palate delivers juicy Morello cherry, white and black pepper, cinnamon and herb alongside firm but velvety tannins and vibrant acidity. Give it time to develop complexity. Drink 2018-2038.
