Deep ruby red with a purplish hue. Completely coats the glass, high viscosity. Voluptuous nose with black and blueberries layered with dark gravel and cocoa. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. Lush and plush on the palate with tons of structure. Dark palate; dark baking spices, dark cocoa, cinnamon sticks, dark minerality in the finish, black cherries and lush dark berries. Stunning wine that leaves your mouth wanting more. Delicious finish that lingers. This will only get better with age, would love to revisit in 5 to 10 years. Drink till 2038. (96+)

2012 vintage. Beautiful expression of western hillside fruit, with enormous depth and complexity. Young, vibrant and exciting. Bravo Jason
