Some more of the 2020 Vintage Magic here: this wine is showing great right now, but will reveal even more to those who can wait! I believe this has the potential to be a Rockstar wine in 3 years, which is why I gave it an open score, with the potential for 93pts. Big, bold, rich and somehow well balanced, this wine is usually aged for 18 months in French and American oak, including 35% new barrels. On the nose, you can expect dark cherry, blackberry, cassis, mocha, tobacco and pencil shavings, while the palate opens up slowly with dark fruits between upfront barrel influence and grippy tannins. The mid palate is thick and packed with chewy tobacco, graphite and dark chocolate while the finish is savoury with a hint of cracked black pepper. Despite the youth of this wine, this is already very enjoyable, but give this wine some time and you’ll be rewarded. This is worth every penny of the $50 ask. (CWC, 10/08/23).
