About

97

Blueberry, blackberry and dried violets on then nose that follow through to a full body, firm and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. This shows grip and some green, wet earth undertones on the finish. Stuctured. Try in 2026.

97 Wine Spectator

A beauty in the making, with waves of dark currant preserves, warmed fig and steeped blackberry fruit, all infused with chai spice, tobacco, singed alder and espresso cream accents. Very grippy on the finish, but this is long and smoldering too. Best from 2035 through 2060. 500 cases imported. — JM

Product Description:

Inky core fading to a magenta rim. A seductive nose, ripe and voluptuous with depth and density. Plump, juicy blackcurrant, black cherry and raspberry. The nose is then drawn into a vortex of complex aromas in which resiny scents of eucalyptus blend with notes of sage and mint with hints of grapefruit and a mellow spiciness. On the palate, firm, sinewy tannins are wrapped in a thick envelope of dense, velvety texture. This is one of the most exotic and beguiling wines of the vintage. It is a weighty wine, dense and deeply colored, with the concentration and stamina to ensure a long life in bottle. - Port House
