"This is a touch more plush in personality than the superb wines made here in 2018 and 2019, but the difference is stylistic, rather than qualitative, and this wine is every bit as promising as those previous vintages."
This is the most opulent and plush of our wines to date. Blue and dark fruits abound upfront, with traces of cedar, cassis, and violets on an aromatic background of oak spice and vanilla. The wine opens generously on the palate with notes of blueberry, blackberry, and dark plum, all held in focus with a taut seam of acidity and a velvety tannin structure. As per our style, this wine was completely fermented via rolling macerations in closed barrels, drained, and then aged for 18 months in 50% new French oak. 14.5% alcohol and 110 cases produced.
