Solidly built, featuring cherry and plum paste notes, laced with stony minerality, tobacco and garrigue accents. This has grip but remains well-integrated, ending with subtle persistence on the cedar-tinged finish. Best from 2020 through 2030. 3,500 cases imported.

93 pts James Suckling

A fresh, dark-cherry and stone nose with attractive purity of fruit here. The palate has a very succulent, quite grainy and deeply ripe feel with a super rich, concentrated and bold serving of ripe dark plums and blackberries. Tar to close. Impressive. Drink or hold.

93 pts Vinous

Bright violet. Deeply perfumed aromas of ripe red and dark berries and garrigue slowly pick up spice and woodsmoke elements as the wine stretches out. Juicy and seamless in the mouth, offering alluringly sweet black raspberry, cherry preserve, spicecake and lavender flavors that slowly tighten up on the back half. The floral and spice notes carry strongly through an impressively long, penetrating finish that's given shape and gentle grip by smooth, polished tannins.
