Ripe and racy, featuring graphite streaks that underscore a core of bright, fresh plum, raspberry, cherry and blackberry fruit. Exhibits lots of range, with black tea, singed alder and warm earth notes emerging on the finish. Grenache and Syrah. Best from 2022 through 2039. 1,091 cases made.

Deep shimmering ruby. Pungent red berry preserve and garrigue aromas are energized by a mineral flourish and a spicy suggestion of white pepper. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering appealing sweet cherry and raspberry flavors that show excellent depth and clarity. Closes smooth and subtly tannic, displaying even tannins, a touch of candied lavender and impressive length.

Ripe but pristine blackberry and cassis are shaded by savory earth, white mushroom and bramble in this opulent, elegant wine. It's silky and sumptuous, with soft, chalky tannins and a lingering violet finish. Drink now–2028.
