This austere wine shows tight fruits, structured and firm. The wood layers and dry tannins are dominant at this early stage. The fruit is there to be found, its blueberry juice and red plum flavors flowing around the tannins. Give this potentially impressive wine 2–3 years.
Big bold, attractive wine that strides over the palate, giving sweet fruit as well as acidity. The tannins are buried within the ripe red berry fruits that are edged with a more concentrated meaty character
A soft, simple wine, with fresh raspberries and red plum fruit flavors. The tannins are dry, but with their caramel edge, they enhance the general softness of this easy-drinking wine.
