Leathery on the palate with sizably structured tannins, this estate-grown wine is robust in black cherry and blackberry, sprinkled subtly in black pepper, tar and coffee. Grown on the producer's BCD Vineyard off Olivet Lane, where it also grows Pinot Noir, it finishes softly, and spicy, with length.
