Pure power on the palate with a fine-boned, elegant yet intense wine that produces an extraordinarily lengthy finish. In addtion to cherry and floral the palate features an array of spices and a subtle savoury character that are both hard to precisely define. It all adds up to a very appealing wine with great potential.

Full-bodied with a great concentration of complex, layered fruit just starting to emerge, it is framed by enlivening acidity and a medium to firm level of grainy tannins and finishes with very good persistence. Drink it now to 2020+. - LPB

Plush, broad and sweet, showing a touch of youthful reduction to its generous raspberry and red cherry flavors. Finishes very long and scented, with a fine dusting of tannins and subtle soil tones. A beauty.

Dried flowers and dark fruits. Strawberry. Beet root. Fine tannins. Bright tension. Drink or hold.

The crushed raspberry and wild strawberry flavors are pure, bright and focused, with aromatic green tea, white pepper and cigar box notes filling in the gaps. Smooth, refreshing and polished.
