TASTING NOTE: Dark and brooding, this is brimming with rich fruit intensity on the nose with nuances of warm spice, game, cedar and cocoa. The palate delivers excellent weight and concentration, backed by velvety mouthfeel and supple tannins, leading to a persistent silky finish. The wine offers outstanding depth and power, while remaining balanced and structured. At its best: now to 2026. Score - 94 (Sam Kim, wineorbit.co.nz, Dec. 2019) Price $ 16.95
