Vinous: "Juicy, youthfully chewy and deeply concentrated." The collection wines have become symbols which perfectly illustrate supreme quality. Careful ageing helps to bring a structured, full-bodied wine with the elegant tannins characteristic of careful barrel ageing. This wine, 100% Syrah is powerful and tannic with aromas of blackcurrant buds and vanilla. Deep ruby red with violet tinges. The palate is typical of a powerful wine with strong tannic structure. Its complexity comes up as the wood notes vanish into a warm, ripe mouthful of plummy flavour. A racy and seductive wine. A perfect wine for putting down.

Vinous

Saturated ruby color. Displays expansive aromas of fresh blueberry, cherry, incense and candied flowers. A subtle olive nuance builds with air. Juicy, youthfully chewy and deeply concentrated, offering smoke-tinged dark fruit preserve, candied violet, olive past, licorice and cracked pepper notes that build on the back half. In a powerful yet graceful style, with building tannins adding grip to an impressively long, floral and spice tinged finish. All of the Ex-Voto fruit went into this bottling in 2016.
