Blackberry, cranberry and currant flavors mingle with cocoa and espresso notes in this bold red. Muscular tannins and tangy citrusy acidity keep this focused. A touch candied in character, but shows density and energy. Drink now through 2027. 0430 cases made.
The extremely ripe 2014 Auditori was playing dangerously with overripeness, hinting on honeyed aromas, plum compote and something earthy, coupled with some traces of hay and straw. The palate is full-bodied with plenty of tannins, very ripe flavors and lowish acidity. It could do with more freshness. 2,250 bottles.
