Description

This wine’s dark burgundy core pushes to the very edge of the glass, heralding intense aromas of black raspberry, ripe blueberry and vanilla bean, dusted with sophisticated notes of crushed slate. The entry is plush with ripe black cherry and warm baking spices, lifted by a fresh acidity and fine-grained tannins. Its ever-lasting finish lingers on notes of wild blackberry and dark chocolate.

Vineyard Notes

"The 2013 growing season was ideal due to healthy vine stress brought on by drought conditions and nearly perfect weather throughout. This vintage will be one of the most heralded in recent history as the wines are explosively delicious, characterized by rich color, delicate aromas, silky mouthfeel and intense mouth-coating flavors."
