"Wonderfully aromatic and expressive, the 2021 vintage opens with scents of sweet cassis, anise, blackberries, roasted coffee, blue herbs and barrel vanillin. On the palate, the tannins are firm, upfront and balanced throughout, with all pockets of the mouth left yearning for another sip. Full-bodied and extracted with ripe black fruit, blueberries, charred caramel and a delightful hint of fresh herbs that concen- trate into a lengthy finish. This wine is approachable upon release and cellar worthy in proper aging conditions."
