Dark purple in the glass. On the nose there’s sweet lingonberry, French oak notes and charcoal. On the palate this wine is delicious- black fruits galore. Lilac, delicious oak without the flab and gorgeous tannins all caress my palate. The finish is super duper….long, a touch dry with that dark fruit jam that is delicious. 92 points $56 makes this a 4 star effort that was the wine of the day for me. Drink till 2028 with all sorts of meats and stews. Salut….
Reddish purple but nearly see through in the glass. The nose is of strawberry and rhubarb. On the palate it is strawberry pie meets cherry with a noticeable up front acidity. The mid palate is where it’s at with this wine- much rounder mouthfeel with flavors of red berries, more rhubarb and some tannins that are ever so gently caressing my gums. The finish is really smooth, long and reminiscent of more strawberry notes. Roasted chicken with garlic comes to mind. 89 points and 3 stars for this $56 effort. Salut….
