Deep Ruby with aromas of sweet berry fruits, earth and floral notes. On the palate flavors of Blackberry, wild currants and hints of sweet berry fruit flavors, savory adding some licorice and cacao. Fine tannins well balanced, great now but has room to still develop, ending with soft fruit. Excellent!

Approachable young, not as heavy as I thought it would be. Good stuff.

2012 vintage just released. Cassis and eucalyptus. Still pretty tight but shows potential. Will be better with some time in the bottle.

Beautiful red fruited Cab with candied cherries and perfect oak integration. Only complaint is the 14.5% alc. which stands out in an otherwise restrained wine.

This is fantastic. It’s more old world in profile, with good new world fruit. Nose is lovely with roses, sweet dark chocolate cherries, with a bit of nutmeg, blackberry and blueberry. Still had tannic structure with quite lush acidity costing the mouth. Dark sweet chocolate with blueberry, blackberry, the nutmeg and some French vanilla coffee in the background. The finish is long. It’s lovely.

This fell flat for me, thin and green/vegetal. Something was amiss. Expected much more
