Floral and mint notes appear on the nose, along with a mix of raspberries, blackberries and baking spices. There's plenty of new oak, but it's been mostly absorbed into the wine, leaving a drink that's rich and sumptuous. And just when you think it's over, a bit of licorice appears on the long finish to add a pleasant finale.- JC

I wondered, before tasting, if the wine had taken a turn toward freshness and poise. Sourced from low-yielding 50-130yo vines, the result boasts more reductive tension than in times of yore, following substantial time on lees amidst 16 months in 100% new hogsheads, largely French. The nose, all camphor, terrine, licorice all sorts, anise and soused plum, is currently enmeshed in a carapace of oak tannins. This said, time will unleash the fruit, allowing the whole to become far more than the sum of its nascent parts. Patience! Closure: Cork. 15% alcohol.

This is a very bold, rich statement of ripe blackberries and plums, swathed in spicy oak. Chocolate and sweet-earth notes and a spear of lemon-like acidity through firm, assertive tannins. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
