Smoke, truffle, crushed rocks, licorice, chocolate, black cherries, espresso, and blackberries are everywhere here, in the nose, and on the palate. The wine is concentrated, lush, creamy, polished, dark, and deep. One of the more opulent wines of the vintage, the finish lingers with its layers of fruit. The amount of oak used used in the aging process has declined, which is a good thing here, allowing the fruit to show more purity, and freshness. The wine is produced from 100% old vine Merlot. Harvesting took place September 8. Drink from 2029-2050. 95-97 Pts.

Inky dark in color, the opulent wine delivers its layers of velvet, and cashmere textured fruits effortlessly. The wine is deep, concentrated, and long. It is also fresh, balanced and even with all of its palate-staining levels of fruit, the wine is never heavy. It remains harmonious and intense. Though, the oak presence is quite strong, so it will need time to fully come together. The wine is produced from 100% old vine Merlot. Harvesting took place September 8.

Produced from 100% old vine Merlot, the wine was aged in 65% new French oak barrels, reaching 14.8% with a pH of 3.6.
