Expert Reviews & Awards
"Hand picked from multiple estate blocks of 5 clones through a 2-week period; destemmed, open fermented with wild yeast, matured for 10 months in French oak (25% new). Wonderful, crystal-clear crimson; the floral, red-fruit assemblage on the bouquet moves seamlessly into a complex palate in terms of the forest strawberry and cherry fruit, but a pure and tightly focused palate flowing effortlessly through to a long, fresh finish and lingering aftertaste." (On the 2020 vintage).
