More medium-bodied on the palate, it has a wonderful mid-palate, building yet perfectly ripe tannins, no hard edges, and a great, great finish. This is another remarkable wine from Bibiana González Rave. It will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and cruise for 10-15 years in cool cellars. Bravo!

There's approachable richness on the palate, with poached strawberry, and then waves of chai spice leading into a warm, vanilla-laced finish. Fresh acidity pumps through the entire experience.

Ripe and plush, with sculpted dark fruit and berry flavors that are loaded with rich spice and savory accents. Creamy midpalate, with chocolate tart accents on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 250 cases made. — KM
