Sourced from the original (1990) planting of Pommard clone vines, this shows thick black cherry fruit, scattered with multi-seed bread and wet hay notes. The flavors are persistent and full, with streaks of coffee and chocolate from having aged in 30% new oak. It's astonishing that Doug Tunnell can offer such glorious wines at such mild prices.
