Reminiscent of a top wine from the right bank of Bordeaux, this wine exhibits incredible concentration and depth accompanied by minerality that is expressed through crushed stones on the palate. On the nose, the wine explodes with flavors of crushed black cherry, violets, cigar box, incense and cedar notes. While powerful and rich, it remains balanced with elegance that is never compromised. The tannins are silky and velvety with an underlining structure that is present but not overpowering. The wine retains incredible freshness and finishes very long.

Abundant rainfall combined with moderate temperatures and extended hang times resulted in the latest harvest on record. The winter rains yielded a healthy cover crop that replenished the soil’s micronutrient stores. The growing season was perfect with temperatures hovering in the 80s and 90s, and not a single day reaching 100 degrees in the vineyard. The fruit arrived at the winery in exquisite condition with small, pure, and unblemished berries. The 2019 vintage is marked by elegance, intensity, and fine acidity, all combining to promise excellent longevity and staying power.
