The 2018 Cirsion also feels a bit young, and it is also quite ripe with 14.5% alcohol, reminiscent of the modern wines from the turn of the century, powerful, ripe and generously oaked. There is a different granularity here: the tannins are a little coarser; there is a bit of an edge, and it's not as polished; it's a little wilder. I think this is going to age well. They managed to produce 10,200 bottles. It was bottled in March 2020 after only eight months in barrel.
Winespectator / James Suckling (96)
A perfumed nose of blackberries, blueberries, cumin, porcini, olives and dried herbs. It’s full-bodied with fine, creamy tannins. Layered. Such complexity, with savory, mineral character. Focused and long. Better in a year or two, when the vanilla character melts into the wine.
