A good example of the variety, this is robust in thyme, sage, savory red cherry and earthy blueberry, deftly balancing the herbal with the fruit. A big tannin presence doesn't preclude a sense of refinement and durability. This wine will continue to integrate well through 2026, and possibly beyond.
