Previously drank 15' and 14' sequentially and with slight yet pronounced acute differences due to vintage in the fruit, all varietals are pronounced and none overpowers the other. They seem to be adjusted to give the best presentation accordingly. The 13' had lesser vaccuum in bottling but did not sacrifice potential during storage as it fruit is still suddenly vibrant with syrah a top note. Tannins pierce the tip of the tongue and gradually roll to backside of the palate with pleasant ripened red cherries and red plums exclusively, slight smoke from surely light and medium toast from what seems to be American and French oak casks. This surely keeps a nice bouquet of spice lingering. Properly stored this production could poor well through 2025 where the plums might supersede the cherries, which might be more sophisticated. Either way all have been well built for the long haul and will eventually have a following for the experienced. Kudos to those who design wines and not just produce. — 4 months ago
