Sourced from the 80-acre estate vineyard, this would seem to qualify as the winery's reserve-level bottling. Light scents of musky umami suggest the estate's unique terroir, and those mushroom flavors, along with cola and red berry, continue throughout. The finish is tart and tight. Drink now through 2020.
