    "A ripe, polished style, exuding purecherry and raspberry notes, accented byoak spice. Turns elegant by the finish,revealing lingering fruit, spice andmineral hints, focused by the vibrantacidity. Best from 2016 through 2027."

    " Bright dark red. Very fresh, pure aromas of raspberry and crushed rock. Sweet, dense and weightless, with strong minerality carrying through in the mouth. Finishes subtle, savory and long, with a saline element and harmonious tannins. Tight today but not austere."
