The structured, expressive palate delivers crushed black cherry, mature raspberry, tobacco and the barest whiff of game alongside tightly knit, velvety tannins. It's well balanced, with fresh acidity. Drink 2024–2031. KERIN O’KEEFE

Ripe and generous with currants, plums and spice, as well as chocolate character. It’s full-bodied with round tannins and a firm, racy finish. Drink or hold.

There is a dry and astringent quality to the tannins that might need to smooth itself out with a few more years of cellar aging. Otherwise, the wine would pair with ravioli stuffed with minced meat and topped with extra cheese.

It's vibrant and approachable now for its fresh fruit, yet will improve with age. Fine balance and length on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2040. 5,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported. — BS
