#tbt Thinking back to the great days of StI with Mark Vlossak working his magic with hallowed fruit from 7 Springs. These wines are mature now and so gorgeous. Nose of cherry/rhubarb and damp earth. Medium-dark garnet color. Medium body - silky on the tongue. Palate of darkish/wild red fruit including raspberry, plus some loam, sage, and mineral. Was amazing with grilled duck basted in cranberry glaze. Hadn’t tried this cuvée in almost 9 years, and it lived up to its early promise.
This is the Special Selection version.
