Exceptionally complex, dark, and brooding. Black plum and wild berry fruits are complemented by graphite, undergrowth, smoked meats, and elegant floral notes. The palate is plush followed with a crescendo of tannins that whisk the wine on a long journey over the palate. Here stands the iron fist in a velvet glove. Savory tannins build on a long, spicy, and complete mouthful of flavors. Despite the power and full-throttle fruit, this wine retains an elegance and nobility often talked about though rarely seen. One of the most complete and satisfying Estate Vineyard wines released to date.
