This vintage is reminiscent of the powerful fruit of 2015 with the racy structure of 2013. The nose exudes ripe fruit and floral notes of violets and roses, with undertones of cypress and cedar. The palate is lush and full, chewy and laden with fruit. Supple tannins and moderate acidity allow the fruit flavors to shine through, revealing layers of red fruit - cherry and plum - with notes of honeysuckle. A long finish gives way to herbal and spice notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and lingering black tea.

An attractive note of bell pepper frames blackberry and black cherry flavors in this solidly built red. Thick tannins take over on the finish, and the fruit doesn't quite resolve the balance in the end. Best from 2022 through 2030. 10,000 cases made, 8,000 cases imported.

This has aromas of mocha, toasted oak and tangerine zest. The assertive, monolithic palate shows raisin, roasted coffee bean and a green note of powdered sage alongside raspy tannins and the heat of evident alcohol. Despite the bold tannins, drink sooner rather than later to capture what little fruit there is.
