Big fruit nose red sour cherries and plums big gripping tannins sandy and long finish. Still a baby - can’t wait to revisit in 5 years. This is a big boy!

On the nose, light & mid red floral fruits. Dark moist, rich soils. Ripe; blackberries, plum, black raspberries, dark cherries, strawberries, pomegranate, cranberries and blueberries. Vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, black licorice, dark rich soil, sweet tarry notes, leather, dry stems and dark, fresh florals with violets.

The body is full but, lighter in style than their first two vintages. However, bigger structure, tannins & tension than the Estate. The tannins are dark, chewy and stick. Sweet tarry notes, dry crushed rocks, dry river stones, limestone minerals, some black licorice, mixed berry cola, suede leather, led pencil shavings, dry stem, dark spice, some dry herbs, fresh red florals with violets. The acidity is beautiful. The structure, length, tension will evolve into a glorious wine in 8-10 years plus. The well balanced finish is so good and fresh now. There’s an even tug of war with fruit & earth on the long finish lasts minutes.

Photos of; the grounds of Beverly & Arvind’s house grounds, Pork Bellies, relaxing and chatting with Beverly as the events wound down and the Indian tent Beverly & Arvind were married under pouring the 13 & 15 vintages.
