Hints of white pepper and campfire smoke linger beneath familiar aromas of earth and dark fruit in the glass. A silky mouthfeel shows more red fruit than past vintages, yet is still distinctly savory with clear traces of bacon, rare meat, soy and umami. Finally, the finish is extended and viscous with lingering shades of violet and olive brine. Another classic vintage, with the potential to evolve into the most elegant and refined expression of our estate Rocks District vineyard to date.
