On the nose deeply fruity, with blueberry and blackberry pie over a subtle backdrop of honeycombs and French oak. On the palate instantly irresistible with mouthwatering tension evolving to a balanced, focused finish.
Lively aromas of blue and ripe red fruit, plums and toasted rosemary. Full-bodied and so expansive on the palate. Well-integrated tannins carry plenty of flavor with so much depth and steady intensity. Well balanced and remaining fresh, despite the lush fruit. Delicious. Drinkable now, but best after 2023.

Big, with cooking spice accents to burnished dark plum and dried blackberry flavors that are supported by fresh acidity. Dark chocolate and toffee linger on finish, which features medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2026.

Scents of dark-roast coffee and touches of volatility enhance this wine’s depths of black-cherry flavor. It’s juicy and spicy, a rich pinot that ends with the ripeness of black-raspberry jam. For roast duck.
