The wines of Fonroque are naturally rich and racy. The clay terroir gives them strength and profundity. The limestone gives them a definite mineral quality. There is a lovely freshness on the palate, with much elegance and refinement. Its length foreshadows a substantial cellaring potential.

Dark plum and blackberry compote notes form the core, while hints of licorice snap and fruitcake form the backdrop. Nice grippy, tarry streak on the finish adds length and drive. Should cellar well. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2034.
