Rich and explosive to the core, the 2020 possesses tremendous energy and nuance right out of the gate. Bright acids run through a core of ripe red plum fruit, blood orange, cedar and pipe tobacco...absolute stunner.
Ripe black cherries, currants, toasty oak, chocolate, and tobacco leaf notes give way to a medium to full-bodied, richly textured 2020 that has velvety tannins, good mid-palate depth, and a great finish.
Leafily fragrant and lightly floral, essence of infant Cabernet, a touch of peppery spice. The oak is more obvious on the palate, but it adds a rocky finesse rather than overt toasty sweetness. Dry, compact tannins enhancing the freshness.
