Estate grown from the northernmost section of the winery, which is warmer and steeper, this is a big, puckering, dry wine with specks of compelling minerality and a stony, gravel-like underbelly. There's almost a chalky quality to it, accented by crisp black plum and cherry. This brawler needs time; cellar through 2022.
