Tasting Notes

Opaque ruby. Smoke-accented dark berry, cherry liqueur and cured meat scents show excellent clarity and a suave floral topnote. Concentrated yet lively blackberry, cherry and spicecake flavors take on violet and olive nuances with air. Finishes with strong, spice-tinged persistence, mounting tannins and a faint touch of smoked meat. 2025 - 2033

Josh Raynolds, vinous.com, April 2020

Black cherry, and soaring raspberry perfume. This is medium-bodied, very fresh and lively for the vintage despite fairly low acidity. It has perfect balance, so easy and fresh. Between 25% and 50% stems depending on the barrel, two-year élévage

Matt Walls, Decanter.com, February 2020

Cask sample. Tasted blind. Reductive, rubbery nose. However, the palate has excellent black-cherry fruit ripeness with a touch of bitter herbal complexity to finish. Grainy, rough tannins. Needs time.
