A harvest of just 2 tons/acre from 30-year-old vines created this gem, a lovely companion to the winery's Old Vine Merlot. It's fragrant and lush, a lively mix of mushroom, spice and gentle fruit. The nose rolls on into a textured, multilayered explosion, with generous and subtle flavors of preserves, leaf and spice. —P.G.
