Black deep charcoal with touches of garnet and black cherry on the rim. On the nose, explosion of dark but fresh fruit like boysenberry with geranium and tulip, lingering on chocolate, cherry and espelette pepper, oregano and clay. On the palate, round and sweet entrance evolving on a round mid-palate with savory notes like tomato sauce, lingering on elderberry ice cream and freshly picked mirabelle plum.

Wonderful aromas of currants, plums, lavender, slate and violets follow through to a full body with tight, chewy tannins that are polished and beautiful. Lovely texture and firmness to the opulent, vivid fruit. Opulence with form. Give this at least four or five years to come together. A blend of key single vineyards. Try after 2024.

This is fun now for its rambunctious profile, but should benefit from a bit of cellaring.
