Shows the soft, ripe 12 vintage. Warm dark, ripe, fruit compote, nice highlight of blueberries, stewed plums, layered baking spices, dark spice, crushed rocks dry soil and twigs. Beautiful dark & red florals.

Big bold beautiful wine - it is still the same - I am not sure it will get any better over time - decanted over 2 hours again - subtle hints of blueberries blackberry and cassis. Massive on the palate with extraordinary fruit extract, but no hard edges, and the vintage’s tell-tale velvety tannins, good acidity and terrific freshness and energy - drink em if you got em

Big and brawny, but glides like silk on the palate. Complex flavors of raspberry and cherry 🍒 syrup. Medium-long, mouthwatering finish.

Love this time of the year when the wine cools the soul and warms the body - this is a big bold beautiful wine that hits the palate with blackberries, raspberry jam, spices and licorice.. This lovely beast captivates all the senses with its sumptuous fruit and amazing balance. - decanted 2 hours - showing a style that both rich and opulent power - we are really smiling tonight

LOTS of fruit but held up beautifully to a salty and peppery steak.

Oak and leather on nose. Full body, dry, nice balance. Black fruits and dark chocolate on the palate. Excellent wine!

[Tasted on July 13, 2019 at The Palm in Nashville with Jay Yalowitz]

75% Cabernet Sauvignon; 25% Merlot. Elegant wine with black currant and blueberry fruit, minerality, graphite and a lavender note. Nice oak and balance despite 15.4% ABV.
