Tasting Notes:
Sourced from older vines and spent 30 months in barrel. It reveals an already complex bouquet of cedar, tobacco, spice box, incense, black cherry, and blackberry liqueur. Suave on the palate, it has loads of succulent fruit, impeccable balance, tons of spice, and several years of cellaring potential. This lengthy offering can be enjoyed through 2025 if not longer.
