Aromas of sweet cherries, flowers and dried orange peel follow through to a full body, yet it’s linear, tight and tense, with refined, polished tannins that frame the wine nicely. Give it a couple of years to come together.
This opens with balsamic aromas of camphor and crushed mint that mingle with ripe black-skinned fruit and coconut. Full-bodied and already rather accessible, the smooth, concentrated palate offers dried cherry, licorice and espresso alongside enveloping, fine-grained tannins.
This red delivers a nice contrast between fruity and savory elements, offering cherry and plum flavors matched by loam, sage and soy notes that are backed by solid, chalky tannins. Compact on the finish for now. Best from 2025.
