On the nose, violets, blue fruits, lavender, dark chocolate, rich dark earth, used coffee grounds, dark currants, vanilla, caramel with fresh dark florals. Palate of; M+ dark meaty tannins, cinnamon, clove, dark rich soils, volcanic minerals, blackberries, olallieberries, mulberries, blueberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, raspberries, violets, dry dark florals, crushed rocks, leather & underbrush. The fruits are; fresh, ripe & juicy. Acidity is very good with a long beautiful finish. The structure, tension, balance & length are well crafted. Barrel tasted the 2016 vintage at the Nickel & Nickel Entrecôte. Photos of the lunch, decorated stainless steel tanks and the archway that leads to their garden area.
