This 100% varietal wine from a young, emerging vineyard was aged in mixture of new French (86%) and American oak. It's aromatically brooding with notes of dark coffee, vanilla, dark cherry, herbs and chocolate. The polished black fruit flavors are rich yet light on their feet with the tannins combed to a fine sheen and mouthwatering acids. Best from 2020–2027.
