93 pts James Suckling April 2020

Lots of moss and oyster shell to the black fruit. Some black olives, dried herbs and dried flowers. Medium-bodied and very firm. Slightly austere, but so fresh and delicious. Plush, yet dry at the end. Really delicious. Drink or hold.

Intense minerality accents the well-honed dark cherry, currant and plum flavors, loaded with savory richness. Slate and dried green herbal notes fill the structured finish. Drink now through 2024.

Winemaker Notes

Deep purplish-red in color. The intense nose offers pleasing notes of ripe blackberries, figs, and dried plums. Spicy notes of nutmeg and black pepper complement a backdrop of tobacco, leather, and a subtle hint balsamic and dark chocolate aromas. The palate is well balanced, lush, and structured, with soft tannins that lead to a long and very elegant finish.
