Premium fruit from both the organic Estate and vineyard partners throughout Napa Valley create a panorama on the palate. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry and freshly turned earth lead into a dense and richly concentrated palate with fine grained tannins. Notes of warm, toasty oak join dark berry compote, dark chocolate, leather, and dried thyme to flow effortlessly through a long, gratifying finish.
This packs in some serious plum compote and cassis flavors, liberally wrapped in dark licorice and finishing with a swatch of sweet toast and tobacco on the broad finish. Nice mineral underpinning keeps it honest.
