Deep garnet-purple colored, it has a wonderfully fragrant nose of violets, black cherries, warm plums and wild blueberries over a core of cassis, cedar chest and dark chocolate with hints of anise and underbrush. Full-bodied, rich and incredibly lively, it has loads of spicy sparks and a fantastically velvety texture, finishing long with savory and earthy notions coming through. Around 600 cases were made. - LPB

Best from 2020 through 2030. 390 cases made. — JM

The palate presents a lot of the same, powerful fruit, but it’s wrapped in a healthy package of structured tannins, leading through to a chewy finish. Drink in 2024.
