Aromatic notes of smoked cedar, blackberry compote and pine bough swell from this glass.
The palate suggests blueberry reduction, cinnamon stick, lavender and blossoming jasmine. The tannin profile is medium-grained and present from the front to the back of the palate tightly framing the rich fruit and spice notes. With 3-5 years in the cellar this bold wine will unpack a bit and open up to show even more expressive qualities.
2015 was a difficult growing season. While the quality of fruit was superb, the yields were about half of a normal harvest. However, the subtly, concentration and balance of the wine is quite remarkable and very approachable even at this time.
Completely purple-black in the glass.
