The wine’s depth is quickly apparent as the nose offers intense aromatics of dark fruit, traces of oak and the minerality of mountain terroir. Bottle aging has provided a silken mouthfeel with supple tannins and gentle, integrated oak. The palate is filled with a rich dark essence of black fruit, espresso, earth and tobacco with traces of white floral. The bright acidity buoys the bold yet delicate flavors as they glide into the lingering finish. We recommend decanting before serving to truly appreciate the depth, layers and complexity of this dark beauty.
