Other Reviews……
Whole berry fermentation and maturation in mostly older French oak (just 20% new). Fresh-picked black cherries, blood plum skin and blackberries. Bay leaf, star anise and turned earth. Hints of olive tapenade. This is snappy and poised with great fruit weight and structure. Excellent for the pricepoint. Drink by 2026.
