Savory aromas of black olive, dried mushroom, iodine and earth, as well as wild blackberry and clove. It’s medium-bodied with firm, sleek tannins and fresh acidity. Bitter berry notes on the finish. Hint of jam, but turns firm. - James Suckling

Scores & Reviews

93 / 100

Wine Spectator

This has fresh savory and bay streaks running through the middle of its core of steeped plum and blackberry fruit flavors, while applewood and iron notes streak the finish. Distinctive wine, with grippy character. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2024 through 2036. 6,000 cases made.

James Suckling

Savory aromas of black olive, dried mushroom, iodine and earth, as well as wild blackberry and clove. It’s medium-bodied with firm, sleek tannins and fresh acidity. Bitter berry notes on the finish. Hint of jam, but turns firm. Better in 2023.

15.5 / 20

Jancis Robinson MW

45% Merlot, 55% Cabernet Sauvignon. Barrel sample. Deepest purple colour. Ripe cassis laden with violets. Sweet and slightly fat without quite enough freshness to balance.
