This wine, wow! Dark chocolate, coffee beans, toasted oak on the nose - very unique. Dark, dark, very dark ruby. Mouthfeel is very dense with a nice long finish. This wine is silky, yet powerful. Dark fruit, dark chocolate, coffee beans, cassis, blue fruit. Minerality well integrated. Gorgeous wine! Early in its life but I had to try one. I’ll enjoy seeing these age. — 2 years ago

The 2018 IX Estate is a wine of extraordinary depth and intensity. The aromatics along are positively dazzling. Crushed herbs, lavender, spice, menthol, chocolate, licorice and gravel lend tremendous power and gravitas. Just as impressive it was last year, the 2018 is positively riveting today. What a wine!
