Tight, tightly woven tannins frame the black cherry and plum fruit. This is a dry, fruit-forward Cabernet with a peppery edge. The finish is very dry, with just enough acidity to keep this wine from being too heavy.
This is a smooth and sweet wine with a smooth texture and honey and cherry flavors. It is soft and fruity, still young and needs to age for a few months to soften the tannins. Drink now.
The garrigue of a blue flower is apparent here, showing the power of this wine. It opens with black-cherry and black-currant fruit. The acidity in the aftertaste is sharp and still a key to the complexity. Drink now.
This is a spicy, oaky wine with a robust layer of smoky toast. Like many Pinot Gris, it is made to be drunk young and warm. The black-fruit flavors are straightened out with crisp acidity, and the aftertaste is a flavor-driven juice-and-soap finish.
This is a sweet, lightly perfumed wine. It has a creamy texture, and the honey flavors give a perfect lift to the red-berry fruits. The aftertaste is so fresh and fresh. Drink now.
This is a rich, ripe wine with freshly baked caramel and dried apricot. It has a dense, rich structure, with its tannins still very present. It is rich with red fruits and acidity, and the aftertaste is a rich, fruity dessert. The following year, the tannins and acidity could be more integrated.
