The 2019 vintage presents an alluring profusion of black cherry, mulberry, and Oregon blackberry aromas with notes of leather, cigar box, and dark chocolate. Hints of desert sage and crème de menthe accent the rich fruit. The palate is silky and voluptuous, delivering loads of currant, cassis, black raspberry, and ripe cherry. Notes of fig and baking spice are underscored by earthy tones of dates and truffle. Mature, ripe tannins yield a weighty, velvety texture integrated with a limestone minerality and subtle oak. A lengthy finish leaves lingering impressions of blackberry, plum, and espresso with a touch of white pepper. A wine of immense staying power that will evolve favorably for many years to come.
