Great showing for IX Estate today, harmonious, concentrated, textural and inviting. Really enjoyed where this was at. Layered. Complexities are really beginning to show while maintaining rich and pure of fruit. Suave tannin, broad, deeply spiced; love the level of integration the oak had achieved at this point

Outstanding wine. Like all of Ann Colgins wines there is structure with finesse. This one will be great for years to come. I wish I could save her wines but I enjoy drinking them so much they never get a chance age for very long.

An almost Bluish-purple color, with blueberries, tobacco, violets and truffle. Beautiful oak notes.
