Nose of black olive and garrigue. Big blueberry and blackberry flavors swirl with a herb and a bit of tar and ash. Acidity very much present but in check. No tannins to speak of and the finish is prodigious. 1st of 4 bottles, will be great to watch this evolve.
Bottle 2 of 6; 18 months since #1. Ready to drink, now. Will probably continue to get better. Nose of green pepper and bacon. Flavors are rich, with funky berry, graphite and loam. Finish is a marathon. Absolutely lovely. S would give it a 98.
Superbly integrated fruit, raspberries and cherries, well balanced and surprisingly soft after a bit of time in the glass. Really pleasant to sip, and the only thing holding back the rating points is lack of complexity in the nose; maybe that will still develop before the fruit and acid fade too much.
Lovely wine. Extremely clean with a very interesting flavor profile similarly to the best wines coming out the rocks and Les Collines. An excellent wine with little dislike, excellent fruit, acid and tannin integration. Great mid-palate rolls to a long finish. Drinking well now with a good decant, and I'm glad to have some in the cellar to see how it develops. Exceptional. PDQ94+
