A warm winter brought bud-break in February. Rain during bloom reduced yields, followed by ideal summer weather, resulting in an early harvest. Thirty-seven lots fermented separately, producing superb quality. A rigorous selection narrowed the assemblage to thirty-one for our fiftieth anniversary vintage. This sensuous wine came together beautifully during barrel aging. It will develop fully within the next twenty years.
Saturated ruby color. Intense dark berry fruits, gravel earth, black licorice, mint, and exotic spices. Powerful bramble fruit entry, sensuous, well-defined tannins, great depth of flavor, enjoyable lengthy finish
