Tasting room visit. Brambly dark fruit- blueberry & plum. Ripe palate- jammy with hints of earth and spice. Juicy ripe finish. More bold and robust, less elegance.

Tasting room visit. Notes of cocoa and espresso with plum and black pepper. Concentrated palate with full dark berry fruit and savory secondary depth. Lush and round feel, finishing with polished tannins and solid length. Very nice.

Tasting room visit. Notes of tea leaf, tobacco, spice, cherry and currant throughout. Really expressive on the nose, with a bright ripe layered flavor profile.. Added peppery mineral notes across the palate. Round in feel with firm tannins and a lush full finish. Lots going on. Excellent with further potential.
