As the Vauthier influence continues to be felt, this is definitely a wine to watch this year. It's a powerful wine with this juicy, seductive texture to the fruit that you see in so many of the best wines in 2018. It's fleshy and brambly, with finely tuned tannins and gorgeous lift through the finish. Drinking Window 2026 - 2040. Barrel Sample: 94
