Raymond Chan Wine Reviews

review

Deep, ruby-red, faintly lighter on edge. The bouquet is elegantly presented, toasty oak penetrating vanilla, nutmeg and cedar underlying cassis, blackberries, plums and violet. Full-bodied, succulent aromas of cassis, blackberries and plums melded with a hint of mint and violet; cedar and spice fill with palate with breadth. The fruit is vibrant and succulent with excellent acid balance and depth. Fine-grained oak detail presents a stylish, smooth mouthfeel that lends a long finish. This poise structured red blend with elegance and power shows succulent fruit, stylish oak and layers. Match with venison and ribeye steak over the next 8+ years.

review

A splendid rendition showing enticing aromas of blackcurrant, dark plum, spicy oak, olive and floral, leading to a concentrated palate exhibiting excellent weight and depth. Refined and classically structured by fine chalky tannins, finishing impressively long and elegant. At its best: now to 2035.

review

A very enticing bouquet with core aromas of dark reb berries with wood smoke and spice scents. Cassis and dark chocolate, plum and dark cherry, anise and clove. COmplex, youthful and enticing. Delicious on the palate with a core of dark red berry fruit flavours that reflect the bouquet. Spices and wood smoke, barrel flavours of anise and vanilla, clove and smoke. Firm youthful tannins and acidity combine to form a decent foundation and mouthfeel. Fruit flavours reflect each variety from dark berries to spice, wood and lees complexities. Well made with best drinking from 2025 through 2035.
