Critic Notes

This is a super red with stone, terracotta and dark berry character. Medium to full body, seamless tannins. Very long and beautiful. Powdery mouthfeel. Lovely acidity. The white pepper and quartz character really comes through. Drink now. But made for ageing.

Score: 96-/100James Suckling

This 40-mile stretch of steep, sloped granite hillsides is one of ...
