Available for:
Crème de cassis, black currant, blackberry, wafts of dried cranberry, a hint of wet gravel after a fresh rain and pencil shavings. The richness of this wine is a love affair- chewy tannins and a long, long finish is something that I truly gravitate towards in wines that I enjoy on a personal level and it is on high display here. Everything is in balance. Enjoy this wine now through 2043.

Saturated bright ruby to the rim. Inky, medicinal aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, licorice, bitter chocolate, menthol and minerals. Suave, fine-grained and intense on entry, then tight and dark in the middle palate, with blackberry, cassis, boysenberry, tropical bitter chocolate, licorice and spice flavors conveying a very primary character. Even today this firmly structured, rather brooding wine shows suave tannins and a modicum of pliancy but there's much to be gained by holding it for four or five years. Perhaps a little less savory than the 2017 and equally bound-up. Substantial dusty tannins are a bit dried in the early going by the wine's peppery herbal element. Lay this one down.
