This is a "wow" wine, with a stunning display of plum, blackberry and raspberry confiture aromas and flavors, allied to a dense but very velvety structure. Licorice, violet and plum cake notes fill in the background. Everything carries through the long, lush finish until the fine chalky minerality finally appears, adding remarkable finesse to this otherwise explosive display. Hard not to drink now, but this will cruise in the cellar.—Non-blind Pavie Macquin vertical (December 2014). Drink now through 2030. 3,750 cases made. —James Molesworth
Rich in cherry and blackberry flavors, with tar, leather and tobacco accents, this is fresh and elegant, framed by refined tannins and vibrant acidity. Harmonious, long and approachable now, though there's no rush. Drink now through 2022. 400 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson
