Tinata 2017, James Suckling

Cracked black pepper, black fruit, ripe strawberries and hints of flowers, following through to a full body with round, creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. Fruity-forward red, yet vivid acidity keeps the energy levels up.

Terra di Monteverro 2017, James Suckling

Extremely floral and aromatic with blackberry, violet and sandalwood character. Full-bodied, tight and focused with rich, chewy tannins, yet pointed and focused. Needs time to open and come together.

Monteverro 2017, James Suckling

A dense, rich red with loads of blackberries, black licorice, sage and blueberries. Some slate, too. It’s full-bodied with rich yet polished and integrated tannins. Flavorful finish. Dried meat and bacon with some smokiness at the end.

Chardonnay 2017, James Suckling

A solid chardonnay with cooked apples, honey and cookies, as well as light vanilla and toffee undertones. Honeysuckle, to. It’s medium-to full-bodied with lovely fruit and a fresh, fruity finish. Tight and focused. Try after 2021.
