Powerful yet harmonious, this rich red delivers black cherry, licorice, fresh herb, smoke and mineral flavors that mingle seamlessly over firm, well-integrated tannins, while balsamic-tinged acidity drives the flavors through the long, spicy finish. Drink now through 2025. 900 cases made.—T.M.

Terraces of tertiary clay-calcareous soil. Fermentation with indigenous yeast in oak vats. Aged for 28 months in casks made from oak specially selected from our cooperage.
