Tasting Notes

"A sleeper of the vintage from this under-the-radar estate, this is a complex, fragrant, sexy style of wine with deep ruby purple color, loads of red and black fruits intermixed with caramelized character, supple tannins, a savory and expansive mid-palate and finish, and sweet tannin. I found this wine extremely endearing and far better from bottle than it had shown from barrel. Give it several years of bottle age and drink it over the following two decades." - Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate (2/27/2013, Issue 205), Ratings: 91, Drink: 2015-2035
