Aromas of ripe raspberry, red plum and cherry, with herbs, pepper and a whole bunch of sappiness, too. The palate has radiant, regal tannins in fine proportion. Super fresh. Best from 2020. collapse

The wine has weight, balance, harmony and a plethora of sweet, ripe, red fruits to make this something that tastes as good as it feels. Produced from a blend of 75% old vine Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah, the wine reached 15% alcohol.

Pungent aromas of ripe red fruit, licorice, potpourri and black cardamom carry a bright mineral overtone. Pliant, sweet and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors, a hint of spicecake and impressive back-end energy. Fine-grained tannins add shape and gentle grip to an extremely long, floral- and spice-driven finish. -- Josh Raynolds collapse

Subtle cinnamon dusts slices of stone fruit and ripe cherries on the nose, but this is an old-school, savory wine with plenty of tannic bite that deserves some time in the cellar so that peppery licorice complexities can emerge. - Joe Czerwinski collapse

It shows the vintage style with its moderate concentration, yet is fine, elegant and silky, and has a beautiful finish. Hide bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following decade. collapse
