A Wine Collector’s Bottle
CRITICAL ACCLAIM | Wine Spectator 94/100, Wine Advocate 92/100
Wine Spectator: Powerful, vibrant and fragrant, with dried lavender, Earl Grey, dried oregano, five-spice power and dark chocolate aromatics to mingle with the core of velvety smooth plum, black cherry and wild blackberry flavors. The tannin’s firm up appealingly on the finish, which goes on and on.
Top 100 of 2021 The nose shows lifted notes of dark berries, plum and boysenberry supported by hints of anise and clove. The palate is dark and brooding, with excellent concentration of layeredrich dark fruits with hints of dark chocolate and earth finishing long with youthful tannins.
