Loaded with peppery herbs, licorice, earth and darker berry fruit, it’s unabashedly California and has fantastic purity and richness. Enjoy this beauty over the coming 4-5 years.

NVWE Notes: This is a darkly complex bottling that opens with an impression of almost over-opulent ripeness, yet with airing manages to transforms itself into a grand-scale yet clearly dinner-worthy wine. The nose is a rich layering of strawberry jam, Bing cherry syrup, ripe plum, pomegranate molasses, date, tobacco and forest earth scents of enormous richness. On the palate, some zest cuts-in to temper all the richness, lighten the mouth-feel and bring greater clarity and balance to lingering flavors that mirror the aromas. It’s built for dark roasts and the like, yet may be even better with rich cheeses. It should improve for several more years. 873 cases produced.
