This has a very impressive nose with rich red and dark berries on offer, as well as a dark stony edge. The palate has a very plush and juicy feel. The attractive and easy-to-drink style here. Drink now.

91 pts Wine Spectator
Concentrated flavors of raspberry ganache and plum tart feature a plush creaminess, accented by Asian spice notes. The long finish is filled with chocolate, mocha and pastry details. Drink now through 2024. 3,000 cases made, 1,400 cases imported. — KM
