100 points - Lisa Perotti Brown, Robert Parker Wine Advocate - "the palate is absolutely packed with black fruit and earthy layers, finishing with epic persistence.” “The 2016 vintage began with a prolific spring that brought an ample amount of rain which helped replenish the soils. A steady growing period followed and showed no major heat spikes, allowing for even ripening throughout the season. Midway through harvest, we experienced a weather pattern that brought a hint of rain, which slowed things down by a few days, but produced nothing that would affect the quality of the fruit. An early finish to harvest laid the groundwork with an even, generous crop load that showed a promising future during this exceptional vintage.” Winemaker Christopher Carpenter

Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with gregarious crème de cassis, wild blueberries and black raspberries with nuances of black tea, violets, aniseed, truffles and new leather plus wafts of charcuterie and chargrill. Full-bodied, very firm and very tightly wound at this youthful stage, the palate is absolutely packed with black fruit and earthy layers, finishing with epic persistence.
