Share this wine:

A supple combination of black cherry and mulberry aromatics with a scent of cinnamon on an appealing nose. The velvety palate has prominent notes of blackberries, featuring spicy undertones and an integrated presence of oak. The fruit is supported by a light tannin structure, in delightful balance with the natural acidity. Preservation of good acidity lends to outstanding freshness with a well-integrated, ripe and finely grained tannin structure.

    Very expressive. Ripe fruit in the ripe plum sphere with a healthy lashing of spice. The palate is fleshy and rounded with a melange of sweet-oak and fruit. A traditional style. Lingering fruit sweetness on the close.

  2. 97

    Dark chocolate, dark plum aromas with herb garden notes. Well concentrated and chocolaty wine with abundant blackberry and blackcurrant fruits, firm tannins, attractive mid palate volume with fruit sweetness and well integrated cedarwood notes.

  3. 93

    Very intense baked blackberry bouquet. Big and plush but evident smokey edge detracts from overall fruit expression.
