"An attractively fresh and expressive nose that is overtly spicy speaks of newly turned earth, violet, dark berry and a hint of the sauvage. There is excellent intensity to the detailed and lightly mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that are supported by firm but sleek tannins on the dusty, mouth coating and beautifully balanced finish. This high quality effort is also well-worth considering provided that you have the patience to wait for at least 6 to 8 years first."

"Good medium red. Slightly medicinal aromas of currant, coffee, tobacco, menthol and milk chocolate. Plush and sweet but doesn't show quite the éclat or definition of the Damodes. Initially seems more open but then the dusty tannins clamp down hard on the finish. Still, this firmly built wine finishes with very persistent red fruit and spice notes."
