"Sweet-plum and orange-peel aromas here. Full-bodied, very tight and reserved with ripe and chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Shows power and finesse at the same time. Great reserve wine. Drink from 2022."
96 Points, James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
Pure and beautiful and lively, with truffles and cherries aplenty. But it’s dense and tannic too, the middle thick with blue fruit density. Though it dances around with natural acidity through the finish too. Ahh. What sets this apart is something outre in the red fruit. A sense that there is more here than just ripe fruit and tannins. A hint of magic. And then it finishes with these mouth-coating tannins that can’t be missed, with no alcohol intrusion, no oak butting in. It’s just long, fine, and proper tannic.
