Opens with a
tantalizing wave of black plums, summer strawberries, toffee,
and hints of zesty spices.
On the palate, deep red cherry and
toasted almonds come wrapped in smooth caramel and creamy
chocolate, lightly dusted with dark cocoa accents. The
sensually complex mouthfeel arrives in a vibrantly swirling,
multi-layered tannic melange, rich in vanilla and roasted
marshmallow. Drink now through 2039.
Arthur Spencer and his family farm this vineyard 100% organically. The result is stunning Bordeaux fruit that draws all its cues from superior soils and microclimates. Arthur sets the bar high and our goal is to reveal this exquisite terroir in every bottling.
Sublime and beautifully structured, with
an almost chocolatier derived palate of flavors.
