Beautifully developing wine. Still slightly acidic and firm tannins. Fruit and oak well integrated but needs a few more years to reach perfection.

Rich, syrupy goodness that's drinking noticeably younger than the 2011.

Enjoyed this wine after tearing my ACL skiing on Blackcomb Mountain in Whistler. Beautiful wine. Complex. Hints of vanilla, dark cherries and blackberries.
