Winemaker's Notes

The wine is intense, concentrated with dark berry characters and prune-like aromas. Spice and pepper is also evident, along with a mild gamy aroma, which is distinctively varietal. The hint of the wonderful liqueur-like Christmas pudding fruits, which is a hallmark of this wine, emerges now and will concentrate as the primary characters subside with development. The palate, too, is especially full. Mild spice, prune and soft tannins fill the palate.

An incredible wine from an incredible vineyard!
