A 100% varietal wine, this comes from a property formerly known as the Preston Ranch, with which the producer has worked for a long time. The wine coaxes silky-smooth, leathery tannins into a sinewy texture bounded by meat, cigar and decadent amounts of white pepper. Complex and layered, it'll sit well in the cellar, through 2023.
