Tasting Notes:
Brilliant ruby in color, the intense, ripe aromas of berry fruit prelude a lush and full-bodied palate, gorgeous tannis and nice structure, good longevity.

Food Pairing:
Decant at least an hour beforehand and pair with rich, structured dishes, red meat, game, seasoned cheeses.

Vinification:
Fermentation takes place on the skins in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks, lasting approximately two weeks.

Aging:
The wine sojourns 36 months in wood: 18 months in Slavonian oak barrels (from 30 hl) and 18 months in French tonneaux (3.5 to 6 hl). Once bottled, the wine rests at least 12 months before it is released.


Ratings & Reviews

97 Points & Cellar Selection - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Delicately scented, this offers underbrush, pressed violet and wild berry aromas. It's medium-bodied and loaded with elegance, delivering crushed raspberry, Morello cherry, licorice and a hint of pipe tobacco set against taut, refined tannins. Bright acidity provides balance. It's a bit austere at this stage but will develop beautifully. Drink 2023–2043." - Kerin O’Keefe (May 2018)

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Macerated cherry fruit holds the center of this elegant red, accented by grass, tobacco and earth flavors. Firm yet supple and elegant, this lingers with a touch of thyme. Best from 2021 through 2035. 1,450 cases made." - BS (Jun 2018)
