The ripe, bold black-currant fruit is painted in a light, fresh style that opens to reveal a beautiful array of flavors, from crushed black cherry to blackberry pie to figs. The fruit is concentrated, juicy and bright, complemented by a brisk line of acidity.
This is a concentrated wine from four vineyards. It has a heavy, concentrated texture, which is cut by the acidity. It has a dense core that will need time to soften. The aftertaste is crisp, bright and full of fruit. Drink from 2020.
This is a wonderful new wine from this family. It’s dry, intense and concentrated, with a long, dark finish, a mouthful of black fruits, a lingering, mouth-filling finish. It shows the region’s purity and quality of tannins and acidity. It’s a wonderful wine, and will be best after 2018.
The winery’s latest effort is a great wine from a fine vintage. It’s dry, intense and focused, with a long, dark finish. It’s a full, round and generous wine, with black fruits and a long, dark finish. This is a brilliant wine. Drink from 2018.

Aromas of toasted oak, espresso and dried fruit are just a few of the aromas you’ll find in this blend of 70 Syrah and 30 Mourvdre. The palate is long and rich, with touches of espresso and leather as well as black cherry and plum. It’s fresh and smooth, with a long, lingering finish.
