The grapes are initially sorted in the vineyard, hand-picked into small crates, manualy destemmed, and then put into wooden vats by gravity flow. Cool pre-fermentation maceration. Manual punching down of the cap. The wine is run off directly into new barrels via gravity flow, without any pumping. It is then aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels.

Wine SpectatorRich and muscular, with exotic roasted spice, braised fig and warm raspberry confiture notes that are supported by a broad baseline of dark cocoa, tar and freshly brewed espresso. Not shy about its modernity, but everything is in place. Just needs to settle in with cellaring. Best from 2015 through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 7,500 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a richly structured wine with beautiful perfumes emanating from the bouquet. The rich, stalky texture is balanced by the flavors of dark chocolate and black currant jelly. It's big, ripe and full of potential, a fine balance between opulence and ageworthiness.
