This is a full-bodied wine that is already balanced with its soft and fruity background. The tannins are already well integrated into the black plum and leather, the acidity is already there, and the wine should be ready to drink from 2018.
This is a soft, rounded wine that is already ready to drink. It is full of red fruits, a strong structure and the acidity that gives it a fresh aftertaste.
It is a bright, fruity wine, with its black plum and red currant fruits, and a juicy, spicy character from wood aging. It is soft with acidity. Drink from 2017.
From a batch of 100 Cabernet, this is an elegant wine. The core is concentrated and structured with a tight, slightly bitter edge that needs time to soften. There is acidity that needs to soften and the tannins to soften. Drink from 2017.
It’s not likely that this wine will age, but in a year or two it will be better. The mineral texture, the fresh acidity and the long, lightly sweet finish will all improve with age. The cherry, cranberry and chocolate flavors are complex, and the finish is long and noble.
This is a firm, tannic wine, almost hard, with the mineral texture and the acidity that it needs to age. It has layers of black plum and currant fruit, but they are not quite integrated. In a year or two this will be rounder and richer, giving more concentrated fruit and black currant fruit. Drink from 2017.
