2019 ()

(vat/casks, bottling June 2020) dark red, Syrah right there. The aroma is soft, shows some sun sweetness in its red fruiting. The attack is cool, precise with red fruits that move along well; it picks up saline and notes of violet late on, has nice width, is engaging. It lasts well, bears fine juice. 30% oak. 2025-26 Feb 2020

2018

(vat, bottling June 2019) dark red; this has a broad, beefy bouquet, has airs of stewed black berry fruits that carry a rather vibrant density. This is a good ensemble on the palate, a proper filling, has floral, fine grain tannins, is a good wine for la table. It offers dark fruits with good life and structure, is bright and well filled. 25% oak. To 2024 Feb 2019
