A complex, lifted nose, showcasing sassafras, licorice, spices and deep red fruits. The palate is rich, with savoury notes, good weight, firm tannins and immense length.

"Concentrated in texture and flavour, the wine has integrated the oak very well. There are aromas and flavours of cassis, black cherry, vanilla and spice. The long, ripe tannins lead to a long finish with savoury notes."

"2016 is brilliant from its sagebrush dusted black and red currant fruit, sensational silky textures, and vibrant finish. If you want to try it now, I suggest grilled meat is the match; otherwise, cellar ageing through 2022 is highly recommended."

"Vinified entirely in new French oak and aged for 21 months, this takes a deep dive into aromas of compost, licorice, tea and tobacco. Dense and detailed on the palate, it adds in savory red fruits, coffee and espresso."
