Opens with aromas of
blueberries, quince jelly, framboise, and marzipan.


On the
palate the wine unleashes a silky wallop of black fruits,
caramel, truffled chocolates, fresh plums, Christmas spices,
and black tea. The melange of flavors is joined by a deep
toasty char as they echo throughout the ridiculously long
finish. (Enjoy from 2010 until 2025 and beyond.)

Growing Conditions

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.

An extremely dense, multi-layered, and
altogether mesmerizing wine.
