Ratings: 93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
Exotic and perfumed with an enticing combination of black, green and red notes. Black pepper, blackberry, Balaton cherry and purple sage. Absolutely jumps out of the glass. Black plum. Defined by velvet attack and silky texture that are the trademarks of the 2016 vintage. Powerful inner perfume mingles with powdered tannins. Focused and fresh. Moves towards a gentle collision between mouthwatering tannins, dense and dark fruit, bright acidity and lingering spice. The most stunning and complete expression to date of the potential of our windy and wild estate vineyards.
