This is a new winery for me, and it’s a promising start. The wine is decadently rich in cassis, cherries, milk chocolate and vanilla flavors, but it has the structural integrity of a fine wine. While acidity is soft, the tannins have the grip of cherry skins, while oak adds its own tannic complexities.
Dry and tannic, with a hard mouthfeel and not enough richness to get past the goal line. Shows blackberry, black currant, herb and oak flavors, and a green herbaceousness suggesting dill and sage. Not an ager, so drink up.
Strong, almost overpowering in fruit, which dominates at the cost of balance. Shows massive blackberries, currants and cherries, as well as sweet oak, but you wish there were more subtlety.
