The winery's top wine in a tough vintage, just a single barrel of this was made. It delivers an extra dose of extract, with the same characteristic pine needle and raspberry flavors found in the estate bottling. It's potent and powerful, with the fruit and alcohol in perfect balance. It winds down with a citrusy finish.
