TASTING NOTES

The aromas of dried flowers, stones, dark tea leaves, hot tile, and dark berries. Full-bodied, yet tight and linear. Wonderful drive and depth. An extremely long and focused finish. A great wine. Needs four or five years to come together. Try in 2022

98/100

A powerful and rich red with wonderful integrity and depth. Full-bodied, tight and silky. Lovely texture and tannin quality. This could equal the great 2015! 100% merlot.
