    July 28, 2021 - Dark and red berries as well as vanilla and eucalyptus in the bouquet. On the palate dark and red berries, firm and round acidity and tannin, good bitterness and a pleasant touch of sweetness, eucalyptus. Well balanced wine. Young maturity stage now.

    March 3, 2021 - The quality of this wine send to cone from the oak. There is no increase in fruit intensity. The oak is delicious though, be French but not overbearing. Long, fresh finish.

    October 30, 2020 - Well made wine, perfectly drinkable now. New world with a bit of oak, but well balanced and developing secondary layers of complexity.
