"Solid, with a youthfully tight core of juicy blackberry and black currant paste flavors, wrapped with brambly grip and backed by twinges of tar and anise on the finish. Needs a touch of cellaring to unwind fully. Best from 2020 through 2030. 15,750 cases made. –JM " (WS)

The medium garnet-purple colored 2015 la Garde has an earthy nose with aromas of red currants, black cherries, pencil lead and bay leaves. Medium-bodied, fine and refreshing in the mouth, it features lifted red berries flavors and an earthy finish." (WA)

"Violet, dark-berry and stone aromas follow through to a medium to full body. Linear and very fine. Tight and fresh. Precise and beautiful. A serious young red. Drink in 2022." (JS)
