Low yield farming welcomes opulence and fine silken tannins. Ripe summer plum, baked cherry and mulberry depth is integrated with generous and lingering notes of cocoa, vanillin and licorice.
Ripe, smooth berry and currant aromas come with a note of graphite on a convincing nose that promises great things to come. The palate on this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cab Franc is smooth and pure, with modest but notable acidic kick. Blackberry, cassis and black pepper flavors are on the money, while this registers as composed, balanced and holding more in store; drink from 2024–2045.
