Some plum and dark fruit but the palate has lots of white pepper. Delicious playful tannin and sweet fruit finish.

Decidedly New School. Plenty of toast, black fruit and ripeness.

Violets, earth, tobacco, chocolate nose. Dark berries and spice on plate. Medium body, Round tannins, a little hot,and pretty serious. Give it 3-5 yrs and drink over the next 10-12 yrs.

Rich Red, floral hints of red fruit, vanilla, lavender....wait for your second glass and start over you find a complex perfume of spring flowers. This wine is mystical, another level as though the footprint is in two different era’s ....today and 40?years in the past. Relaxing and worth every expectation. Only will improve over the next 10 years.
