This firm, rich red shows the freshness of the appellation in a hot, ripe year like 2017. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Fine tannins. Dried mushroom, walnut and bark undertones to the ripe berries. Solid wine. Drink or hold.

Combining structure and finesse, this has subtle but intriguing aromas of camphor, rose and sunbaked earth. On the taut, juicy palate, fine-grained tannins accompany dried cherry, orange zest and star anise before a coffee-bean finish. Drink through 2025.
