This is a powerful wine with solid fruits and structure. The palate is full of beautifully ripe fruit—packed with rich and juicy blackberries. It shows how the potential of this property is being realized. Barrel Sample: 93-95 Points
Quite ripe, with unctuous plum sauce and warmed fig fruit. A solid graphite spine gives this definition and drive, while smoldering tobacco and anise notes fill in the finish. The gorgeous echo of boysenberry at the very end bodes well for the cellar. Best from 2017 through 2030.
“One of the most singular Bordeaux I have ever tasted, it verges on being port-like, but it pulls back because of the extraordinary minerality and laser-like focus.”
