(From a 4 ha parcel; 25% whole clusters). Prominent wood pushes the otherwise markedly ripe array of sombre and earthy dark berry fruit liqueur-like aromas to the background. There is good energy to the detailed yet impressively rich flavours that are shaped by firm tannins on the long, deep and complex if slightly dry finish that flashes a hint of bitter cherry. Drink 2024+. 89-91 points.
