With medium to full-bodied richness, a lively, elegant texture, and seamless tannins, it's going to put a smile on your face any time over the coming 10-15 years. It reminds me of a top notch Pomerol from the likes of Marielle Cazaux.

Deep garnet-purple in color, it rolls effortlessly out of the glass with compelling scents of baked black and red plums, mulberries and juicy blackberries with hints of licorice, allspice and bay leaves. The soft, spicy, medium to full-bodied palate is chock-full of lively black and blue fruits, delivering loads of savory and earthy nuances on the finish.

Dense, powerful and rich, with plenty of mocha notes to the dark fruit and ripe spice flavors. The chocolaty finish shows peppery hints, with a creamy texture. Drink now through 2025. – KM
