(2021) The vineyards here were planted in 2000 and 2001, and the wine comes from a season that began cool, but warmed up during the peak harvesting period with very little rain. It spends 18 months in French barrels, 30% new. It has a meaty, maybe slightly herbaceous character, not too distinctive in terms of fruit profile, more spicy and a touch green. In the mouth it has black fruit, cool acidity and a stripe of tannin that keeps it savoury, if rather lean.
