Critical Acclaim: 90 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
Winemaker Tasting Notes: Flavors of dark plum and mountain blueberry lead into hues of tobacco, black pepper, and black olive. Aromatic nuances of coriander, basil, and violet bring a savory and floral complexity that is reaffirmed with notes of iron and smoked meat. Fine grain tannins and elevated acidity transition to an extended finish reminiscent of berry herbal tea. A wine of precision and restrained power.
