97 POINTS: Dark purple then dark ruby core, ruby at the rim. Complex, floral, fruity, toasty and oaky. A bold bouquet with enticing aromas of plums and blackberries, fresh new oak, raw brown sugar, crushed roses and violets. Dry and firm on the palate, but also fruity with flavours that reflect the nose. Chalky fruit tannins, firm toasty oak tannins, medium+ acidity with additional flavours of olive and hay. Long finish. Very young still so hide at the back of the cellar please. Best from 2024 through 2034.
95 POINTS: A blend of merlot (58%), cabernet franc (23%) and cabernet sauvignon (19%). Plump, fleshy but structured. Vibrant acidity and tannins balancing fruit and alcohol sweetness. Weighty, textural wine with plum, subtle floral, liquorice, wood smoke and anise flavours.
