Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) Peppery and spicy with plenty of berry fruit (cherries and raspberries) intertwined with dusty, loamy soil, incense, and a Provencial garrigue-like note jump from the glass of this impressive wine.

    rated ~86 pts avg. per Marketview: huge, dark, rich, with chocolate, blackberry, plum & black cherry aromas, & smoky, spicy notes. Powerfully rich in mouth w good intensity, long/spicy finish. Ripe, zesty, baked berry pie aroma, appealing flavors of huckleberry, fresh sage, licorice. Over the top, reserve level, limited production, bold tannins, dark, voluminous.
