A stunner from this vineyard, made entirely varietal, and aged 20 months in new French oak. Floral and herbal, the wine is thick, dense and concentrated, still youthful in intensity. Smoked pepper accents meat and game, as rose petals come into play on the nose. Fully expressive in these savory characteristics, it ends in a burst of succulent blueberry and smoke.
