There’s a very brambly and juicy array of fine, spicy cherries with such appealing, sappy complexity already. So much energy in this wine. The palate brings a superb array of very bright and juicy red and darker cherries. Exceptional concentration. So vibrant and so generous. Drink or hold.

While this possesses the charm that typifies this vintage at its best, it's one cuvée that will definitely reward bottle aging.- WK

The wine was still in barrel in November, with the grapes having been picked on September 8th for this wine and thirty-five percent whole clusters included this year. The wine is still a puppy and was in the process of absorbing its thirty percent new oak, but all of the constituent components are in place for a stunning wine down the road. The still slightly new oak bouquet (which of course will pass in due course) offers up a refined blend of black cherries, sweet dark berries, woodsmoke, gamebird, dark chocolate, a bit of sweet stems and the aforementioned spicy new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full and rock solid at the core, with lovely soil signature, fine-grained tannins and huge backend energy giving the wine stunning length and grip on the perfectly balanced and complex finish. Great juice.

The sleek and almost painfully intense large-scaled flavors possess evident muscle on the driving, firm and hugely long finish. This is terrific and should make for great old bones if anyone has the patience to wait.

The oak needs a little more time to integrate on the palate, but this is a spicy, well balanced, structured red that shows the concentration of its old vines. 35% whole bunches add an extra dimension here.

Sweet, ripe cherry, black currant and spearmint aromas and flavors are focused by vivid acidity, while the refined tannins add a base of support.

Tight and sinewy, lingering with fruit and spice notes on the aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2040. 70 cases imported. — BS
