Just 1,800 cases of this powerful, profound wine are made, from the same three vineyards that go into the winery's vineyard designates: Cold Creek, Canoe Ridge and Indian Wells. Thick, rich fruit is set off with substantial, chocolatey tannins. Still a bit restrained, but give it a few hours and interesting notes of black tea, smoke, leaf and leather emerge. Cellar Selection.
