Winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown’s Notes:
The wine possesses a purple-black hue in the glass that is almost completely opaque at its core. The aromatic profile is densely layered with notes of smoked meat, lavender oil, cedar bark, worn leather, spearmint, and blueberries. The mouth feel displays a steady contrast of weight and levity, with powerful notes of clove oil, macerated black fruit, allspice, cocoa nib, lilac and crushed rock. Due to the higher skin-to-juice ratio this vintage, the flavors are still tightly packed together and the tannic structure takes some time to unfold. With an hour in a decanter, this wine starts to show its true colors and those that are patient, will be richly rewarded.

Vintage:
The most pertinent note to start with for this vintage is the significant decrease in quantity. Usually, cluster size in all 3 blocks at the vineyard is medium-plus and we have enough clusters to finely tune how much fruit we hang going into harvest to balance color profile and flavor complexity. In 2015 we found the crop load to be smaller in terms of overall clusters and berry size. While the downside is less wine available, the upside is small berries and smaller clusters creating more concentrated flavors, saturated color and balancing structure.

Ratings & Review

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2014 Vintage):
"Though tight and chewy, this opens to offer glimpses of blackberry, currant, plum and wild berry flavors, shaded by cedary oak notes that add structure and dimension to the core fruitiness. Best from 2018 through 2028. 470 cases made." - JL (Jun 15, 2017)
