An attractively intense, deep and dark red. The intense nose offers a subtle combination of red fruit and attractive oak, giving way to denser aromas of roast coffee and some slightly spicy notes. The palate is well-structured, on expressive, velvety tannins mingled with a host of ripe fruit and toasted flavors. A long and silky finish reveals excellent balance and fine expression of the terroir.

Wine EnthusiastFruity and rich, this wine is developing fast. It is full of black currant fruits, with an impressive background of solid, structured tannins. The wine is linear, fresh, showing how well this property is developing its quality. It's a wine for medium-term aging, so drink from 2018.

Wine SpectatorThere's a lightly dusty, singed sandalwood feel to this red, with plum and blackberry fruit laced with toasted vanilla and loam hints. Features a light twinge of plum skin on the finish but remains approachable overall, presenting a lingering tobacco whiff. Drink now through 2021.
