(2016) Though the recipe has since changed, at this time the wine was matured in all new barrels for 18 months, with a fairly heavy toast. From the top of the home vineyard hill. Big, sweet and mulberry and mint nose, very ripe and has developed a gamy note. Sweet and ripe on the palate too, a full on onslaught of chocolate, espresso and rich, sweet black fruit. Well balanced and the tannins creamy and mellow. Massive, super ripe but delicious of its style.
