Rich, heady and bursting at the seams with personality. Black cherry, menthol, licorice, plum, espresso, lavender and savory herbs infuse the 2017 with striking layers of complexity and sheer character. Statuesque and towering, the 2017 is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty.

Beautiful stuff, offering a complex, ethereal style as well as a gorgeous nose of kirsch and black raspberry-like fruit along with complex sappy flowers, spice box, salty, seaside-like minerality, and forest floor. This ruby/purple-hued 2017 has medium-bodied richness, terrific overall balance, an incredible floral quality, and a great finish.

An incredible wine with pure, crystalline expression and dynamic energy. Its aromas are deep, broody and layered, with cranberry sauce and blackberries accented by blood orange, woods moke and tea leaves. The palate is energetic and incredibly light on its feet, bursting with bright fruits tinged with bitters and citrus. It has a firm, grainy frame, lip-smacking freshness and a long, ethereal finish.
