Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) the 2012 growing season was one of the most stellar in decades. Vineyards were at their maximum potential. Ideal weather during bud break and fruit setting allowed grapes to mature as close to perfect as we’ve seen in some time.

Winemaker's Notes

A delicious nose, packed with cherries, toast, chocolate, cedar and spice. Light tannins soften and gently give way to the finish, which lingers on with notes of cinnamon and fresh berry. This wine has an overall remarkable depth and complexity that guarantees greatness in its old age.
