Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Decanter Magazine (2020 vintage):
"Modern, lifted and a bit heady, but attractive and evocative. Black cherry inkiness segues into a dense palate where all the fruit is crammed into a structured body with drying tannins. Herbs and stones hemmed in by a firm grip. A good all rounder." (Nov 2023)
