Solid second wine of Vineyard 29. Very dark purple color. Lots of liquorice and tabacco leaves at the beginning. Followed by vanilla, black berry, blueberry, creme de cassis. Super dry on the palate, lots of dark roasted coffee on the finish. Good structure, but the tannin is a little bit bitter and too dry. Maybe it's over extracted or the grapes come from the younger vines. Nice wine overall, but needs long time decanting. 14.7% alc. 2013 vintage

Great mouthful of heavy tannins. Amazing dark fruit, tobacco and cedar.

2014 vintage is spectacular. Velvety, complex and subtle all at the same time.

Luscious and structured. Really delivers fruit and some nice coco notes, grippy and could definitely rest for a few, but also ready to drink!
