Lovely now, very different from its sibling, and the two make an excellent pairing if you are interested in putting them together. Tons of salinity on the finish. This is great, juicy and mouthwatering. Drinking Window 2023 - 2036

An attractive Bordeaux with currant, blackberry and black-tea undertones. Crushed stones as well. It’s full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins. Lovely purity of fruit and intensity. Made partly in amphora. Drink or hold.

The full-bodied palate (15% alcohol) delivers rich, spicy black fruit preserves flavors with a racy backbone and chewy texture, finishing earthy. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
