Notes of mint, blueberries, red cherries, spiced plum, cedar, peppercorn and Christmas spice.
Surprisingly bright on the mouthfeel and cooling on the palate. Not heavy or cloy at all, refreshing with a signature crack of pepper on the finish. Pop and pour ready!
We still brag about how excellent 2018 vintage was in Carneros, but 2019 may just steal the show as the vintage of the decade in Napa. Time will tell, but as I’m writing these tasting notes (July 2021), I’m astonished with the early development and elegance of this vintage every time I uncork a bottle. Although 2019 has the structure to last years in the cellar, its freshness makes it a perfect wine for today’s occasion.
