Cherry and plum flavors are youthful and fresh in this wine, accented by crushed mineral and a tinge of peppery spice. It's silken-smooth in texture yet held upright by taut, persistent tannins. Attractive already the wine should improve through 2028 and hold further.

Solid, with a core of raspberry and plum pâte de fruit notes that expands nicely as singed apple wood and red licorice flavors fill in through the finish. Offers a fleshy feel and good energy. Best from 2019 through 2026. 4,000 cases made, 200 cases imported.
