Scarlet color, almost opaque. Fruity, stemmy nose. Notes of dark fruit, bing cherries, moist soil, herbs and spice. Vibrant in the mouth. Silky sweet fruit but not over the top. Nice balance and structure. Really good. If i was tasting this blind I could see someone steering me towards a young Dujac guess.

Striking aromas of lavender/rose petal, dark cherry, herb. Feminine yet mid-weight on the palate with dark cherry, nutmeg, and a herbal note. Perhaps a bit thin mid-palate but is framed nicely by silky tannin and nice acidity. Rhys provided tonite!

Depth & minerality. Still a touch young.
