Tasting Notes

A structured vintage that is built for aging in magnum. Lovely perfume of ripe black cherries and vanilla bean seamlessly mingles with a hint of slate often found in fine Bordeaux. Blueberry and black cherry flavors fill the palate, laced with broad, smooth tannins wrapped in attractive notes of dried tobacco leaf. Silky, tart black cherries, blackberries and cigar box spice linger on the long finish. Enjoy now or cellar in 750mL through 2033 and 1.5L through 2047. Decant for 45-60 minutes to elevate aromas and flavors.

  • Cooperages: Barrels from five French coopers (one of which also makes American barrels) were selected based on blind tastings and vintage flavor profile; primarily medium toast.

  • Selection: Post malolactic fermentation, individual lots were blind tasted and ranked, then assembled into our “barrel blend.” After one year in barrels, the “barrel blend” was reassessed and only top lots were combined for the final master blend.
