Very tame on the nose, not much going on. The finish is dusty and a bit smoky, too tannic for me. Not particularly impressed. Read more

Smoky bbq and cinnamon on the nose. Spicy berries on the palate with some oak. Very complex. Read more

A very direct note of sweet, toasty oak almost wrapped in sweet black fruit; but this is just a spice rack on the nose with nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and dried ginger galore. There is a nice bed of black raspberry fruit lurking under the surface. With air, the spice does dissipate revealing more fruit with an attractive leathery edge. In the mouth, this is a bit stiff with vibrant acids and some imposing wood tannins framing the minerally, tense, almost hard fruit. This is oakier than I generally enjoy but the fruit shows remarkable energy, all things considered. There’s a lot of spicy toasty oak on the back end as well, but the fruit remains there just under the surface. Medium-bodied with a traditional feel and modern flavors, a good wine to try if you like Bordeaux. At this price, a ridiculous value. 89pts

Very smoky. Lots of spices coming through. Finishes a bit dry.

Very spicy nose, with dense, powerful flavors of dark plum, mineral and graphite leading to bittersweet chocolate on the finish.
