#18 Enthusiast 100 2018
Return to List

Compelling aromas of Mediterranean brush, dark spice, pressed flower, graphite and aromatic herb draw you in for more of this elegant red. Focused and intense, it boasts great energy, offering juicy wild cherry, rosemary, white pepper and star anise, framed in bright acidity and extremely refined tannins. It's gorgeous and already enjoyable but will offer a decade or more of exquisite drinking. Kerin O’Keefe
