Tasting Notes

Bright, dark red. Wild, earthy aromas of raspberry, currant, smoky minerals, coffee, dried rose and spices; perhaps a touch reduced but at the same time explosive and alive. Wonderfully silky and broad but light on its feet; doesn't show the chocolatey ripeness or baby fat of some of these 2015s but seriously fine-grained and concentrated, with its terrific savory minerality accentuated by pepper and floral nuances. Finishes with firm tannins, outstanding slowly mounting length and adamant saline minerality. This should be long-lived.

**Note: from 90+ year old vines**
Firm reduction blocks an evaluation of the nose. Otherwise the sleek and ultra-refined middle weight flavors possess lovely mid-palate concentration as well as an abundance of dry extract that coats the palate and buffers the moderately firm tannins on the Zen-like finish. Textbook CSD.
