This Kingpin is a real bruiser beneath the cloak of refinement, and there’s a lot going on in the fortress in terms of richness and broad-shouldered tannins. Thankfully, a couple of years cooling its heels has already smoothed the edges and supported a beautiful evolution; this beast is ready for a takedown. Black fruit, cigar box and cedar lead towards a silken smorgasbord with dark chocolate and crushed rock waiting in the wings.
Purity and focus to this red with blackcurrant, chocolate and hazelnut aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, yet tight and refined with a soft, smooth and creamy texture and a flavorful finish. 93% cabernet sauvignon and 7% petit verdot.
