James Suckling was especially impressed with the reds from 2018, loving the added depth and intensity on the center palate. Winemaker Dan Petroski took an excellent vintage to new heights by harvesting a little earlier and controlling the alcohol levels. This sings with berry, coffee and lightly toasted oak.
Pretty aromas of currants, walnuts and fresh tobacco follow through to a full-bodied palate with dusty, chewy tannins and lots of berry, coffee and lightly toasted-oak undertones in the aftertaste. Needs some time to resolve the tannins. Very drinkable now, but better after 2025.
