TASTING NOTE: Wild fermented; matured 16 months in mostly seasoned American and French oak barrels. Dashing, slick and transfixing. Inky blackberry, black cherry and satsuma plum fruit delivering density with impressive definition, lifted by violet perfume and set to a grand foundation of fresh licorice. Elena Brooks' signature fine-ground tannins carry a long finish. Drink by: 2034. Special Value. Score - 96 (Tyson Stelzer, winecompanion.com.au, Aug. 13, 2021) Price $ 22.95
