Deep garnet-purple in color, it features baked blueberries, stewed plums and redcurrant jelly with hints of cumin seed, cinnamon and crushed rocks. Full-bodied and densely laden with black fruits, it has a velvety texture and plenty of freshness supporting the long, spicy finish.- LPB collapse

(93-94 points) This is a substantial wine with powerful tannins, backing up a ripe and rich palate. Full-bodied, dense and flavorful. Shows lots of dark-berry, dark-chocolate and dark-tea flavors.

The espresso, wild cherry, stone and fennel is apparent from start to finish. There is depth but you also find energy, giving it lift in the finish.

It’s well-made, and again, nicely balanced. It should be an outstanding wine and will keep for 10-15 years. collapse

Dark but bright-edged purple in colour, the spice from the Petit Verdot in the blend comes through on the nose and in the colour.

It's not quite as precise as some, with reductive notes just knocking the aromatics out, but this will resolve itself during ageing. It has firm tannins, a lovely creamy mid-palate and deep spices which extend the finish. 40% new oak.
