Aromas of crushed blackcurrants and cherries with dried Provence herbs, lavender, raw walnuts and spiced cedar. Graphite, too. Full and muscular with a broad-shouldered, velvety tannin structure that goes on for minutes...

In this stylish wine, fruit and tannins are in harmony. Black plum flavors are richly concentrated with the firm structure. The wine is set for long-term aging. Drink from 2027. - Roger Voss

Still quite oaky at the moment, so it takes a little effort to find its floral, spice and dark cherry essence. Round-in-texture with a lush, opulent, albeit, oaky finish, perhaps with time, the wood will become better...
