"This wine represents the first time the winery has aged its red in entirely French oak, switching slowly over from American. Notions of clove and vanilla accent sanguine red fruit and savory elements." Wine Enthusiast, Editors' Choice, 92 Points, November 2019

Tasting Notes

Pure elegance in a glass. Aromas of black cherries, pomegranate, dried cranberries and a hint of graphite channel classic Bordeaux. Its lovely, silky texture coats the palate with layers of black cherries and a touch of cedar from French oak’s fine tannins. From beginning to end, the balance carries all the way through. Enjoy now after decanting for 60 minutes or cellar through 2029-2034.
