"Cold soaked in small open pots 14 days on skins; matured in French puncheons for 10 months. Bright crimson; the bouquet is highly floral and scented with intriguing Asian spices shot through its bevy of red and black cherry fruits, the palate combining all of the characters of the bouquet with a nuanced savoury twist. 97 Points/Drink to 2025." - James Halliday

"Huge wafts of red fruit and spicy perfume. Floral notes too, but the default is savoury-tinged, expansive scents of fruit, sweetness, spice, earth. Lovely stuff. Mouthfilling with plush but satiny texture, fine, firm, slender tannins that mesh like a web through the mouth, finishing with dusty-savoury pucker. It’s a wine that feels delicious even if structured to the hilt, even open for a while needs time to relax, but there’s deep pleasure in the swirl and a satisfaction in the draw on the glass. Satisfying in fruit character and elegance of pinot noir, but showing some flex. This is pretty epic. 96 Points/Drink 2014-2024." - Mike Bennie, Wine Front
