Layers of red raspberry, bramble fruit and some blueberry on the nose. Hints of honeycomb and vanilla, nice layered focus to the palate.

Darker on the nose than the others with spice, black licorice and dark fresh perfume florals. Palate is full, round and soft thicker tannins. Ripe & juicy blackberries, black cherries, black plum, black raspberries, black licorice, super soft spice & dead on baking spices, soft and easy dark minerals, super fine chalkiness, bright high acidity and long polished finished. Most would not have any issue drinking these right away. They are very easy & enjoyable to drink now but they will certainly be better & more complex in 3-5 years.

The Estate vineyard (formerly known as Dussin) is coming into its own with age. Intensity married to subtlety, this is a beauty. Long, detailed, complex and expressive.

Remember trying this at IPNC a few years ago with the Dussin. Great, deep raspberry, acid, structure, feels like a 2012 that will age for a Long time. Definitely a hold.
