Rare and Not many left - 96 Point Wine Amazing and Delicious
Dark red, purple hue. Dark brooding nose of plum and cherry, smoky stalk tannins and toasty oak. The palate is opulent with good weight and texture. Fruit is balanced by chalky tannins and nice acidity.
96 Points | "A stunning rendition showing perfumed aromas of dark cherry, floral, olive and hazelnut with nuances of warm spice and mushroom. The impressively concentrated palate displays outstanding weight and depth, while remaining elegant and refined with a seamless flow and textured mouthfeel. Immensely complex and gratifying. At its best: now to 2031." - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
93 Points | "
Complex, youthful, tense and varietal. Aromas of dark berries and toasty barrel, clove and black currant, some fine savoury moments and hard clay earthy qualities. On the palate - firm, dry, complex, youthful then fruity with varietal flavours of dark berries then attributes suggested by the bouquet. Firm tannins with support from acidity require some cellar time to relax and integrate. Well made and needing cellar time with best drinking from 2023 through 2030."

Moderately concentrated pinot noir with plum, dark berry, sweet cherry, vanilla and pronounced spicy oak flavours. The oak is a little dominant at this stage, although bottle age might correct the imbalance." - Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review
