The 2015 is a deep garnet red. The nose is very intense with lovely maturity on red fruits (raspberry, cherry) and black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry) notes. A touch oaky. A swirl round the glass opens more complex aromas of peony, liquorice, blackcurrant liquor and cocoa. A lovely mouthfeel, densely packed and seductive. Present but soft tannins give the wine a classical profile. The finish is long and slightly toasted.

Wine EnthusiastSolid tannins mark this still very young wine. At the same time, the fruit is rich and well proportioned. Black currants dominate the fruity spectrum, giving the wine richness as well as great potential. Drink from 2025.

Wine SpectatorFeatures a flash of ganache that gives way quickly to gently mulled plum and blackberry reduction flavors, carried by silky tannins and backed by warm tar and smoldering tobacco notes. Just a touch shy on stuffing in the end, but shows nice typicity and balance. Drink now through 2025. 11,667 cases made.
