Tasting Notes

Mixed wild berries with a lovely lifted sappy note and a hint of graphite lead on the nose. The palate is plush with succulent blackcurrant and black cherries and a fine, taut tannin structure. This is all rounded off by a delightfully spicy, fresh finish. Drink from 2020.

Reviews & Scores

The palate is very harmonious with very fine tannin, the whole bunch lending a slight earthiness toward the finish that lingers. This is such an impressive wine in the context of the growing season.
91-93 points, Neal Martin
