Tech Sheet


Occasional Wine Note: This is a big wine made bigger with nearly 2 years in toasted French oak barrels. The dark fruit is tempered by flavors and aromas imparted by the oak, and the tannins are pronounced. There's a lot going on with this wine from nose to long finish. It's definitely not for the faint of heart.

    Critic Score: 95

    This vinous jewel is a show of restraint and discreet elegance. It’s wonderfully grained, so deep and young with layers of spice, herbs, dark fruit, olive and other savoury notes. The palate is crisp with soft, abun- dant tannins and an extremely long, oaky finish. A step beyond the norm.

    Critic Score: 92

    A pretty nose of dark plum, mulberry, olive, mocha and cigar box. Full-bodied with firm tannins. Structured, focused and layered with a long finish. Tempranillo. Vegan. Drink from 2022.
