This was my first time trying a wine from this vineyard. It is excellent. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has cassis, blueberries, slight coffee, and spice. On the palate, this has a great texture. Firm tannins. Lots of cassis, some blueberries with underlying minerality and dry earth. Good finish. This needs seven to ten years and should be good for a decade after that. It will work with medium and heavier meats and fowl.
