(From 2012 Vintage) Exhibits dark black and blue fruits that drive down the center of the palate and slowly melt into all areas of the mouth. There is focused acidity and a tannic grip that carries the rich dark fruit character towards the midpalate, followed by creamy black cherry, dark plum and dried currants. There is intensity to this wine that is followed by a slow release of complex flavors and textures, leading to a long and lingering finish.
(From 2010 Vintage) Offers a firm, generous mix of dried berry, mineral, cedar and sage, with touches of wilted rose, raspberry and cranberry, ending with fine, detailed tannins.
