"Sweet berry and cherry with some lemon and orange-peel character. Watermelon, too. Medium body. Medium, round tannins and a creamy finish. Lovely texture and flavors here. Drink or hold."

"Fresh flower, strawberry and mushroom aromas follow through to a medium body, with round tannins and tangy acidity. Candied oranges to the plummy fruit. Drinkable now, but even better in a year or two."

Smoked dark cherries, dried meat and some muddled, herby undertones to the dark chili chocolate and wet stones. Bittersweet with some tart cherries and tight, fine-grained tannins before a medium finish. Drink or hold.

Aromas of rose, sliced strawberry and roasted thyme. Medium-bodied with driving acidity and very nice concentration. Tense tannins are complemented by an array of well-ripened red berries. Thyme, rosemary and black tea come through. Lovely.

Plenty of blackberry, ink and hints of sandalwood. Full body, chewy tannins and a slightly austere finish. Some white pepper, too. Structured. Needs time to soften. Drink after 2024.

Savory nose, with iron, dried dates, orange peel, warm spices and sweet roasted sesame. Lovely tension on the palate with powdery tannins. Lots of resolve here, with a tense mid-palate. Long and tangy with a bittersweet echo. Drink now or hold.
