Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: Another stunning vintage from this little vineyard. The wine is inky dark, almost opaque with a deep, purple hue. On the nose, it opens with intense blueberry and blackberry aromas with a toasty caramel and cinnamon undertone. Further aeration reveals deeper, complex layers of ripe plums, white pepper followed by licorice, cedar and a touch of mint. On the mouth, this wine is extracted and heavy but well balanced all the way to a big, hedonistic, juicy, mouth-filling finish. Longevity is to be expected from this variety for next 8-12 years.
