Press & Reviews
An early-drinking style of lagrein that shows raspberries, citrus and eucalyptus oil. Medium body, soft and juicy tannins and a supple finish. Drink now.
The 2018 Lagrein is dark and savory from the first tilt of the glass. It boasts a gorgeous bouquet of black cherry and blueberry, offset by hints of brown spice, sage and peppery florals. Then suddenly, the expression changes, with a much juicier personality than expected, further complicated by a mix of tart wild berry with a twist of citrus. The textures are light and feminine, but with authoritative grip. Fine tannins and minerals create further tension with a lip-smacking finale that urges you to take another sip.
