This is the second vintage from this producer to showcase this site, one of the marquee vineyards in the appellation. With a slightly bitter tinge of black tea, it shows orange, clove and strawberry around a lovely, earthy underbelly. Medium bodied and bold, the acidity is integrated and supportive, providing a fresh antidote to the strength of the tannin.
