Wine SpectatorThis fragrant version offers menthol, eucalyptus, sandalwood and cherry aromas and flavors, married to an elegant frame. Balanced, with a lingering aftertaste of spice and tar. Drink now through 2028. 1,250 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of stewed black-skinned fruit, oak, blue flower and a hint of coconut lead the nose while the fleshy palate shows ripe black cherry, vanilla and espresso. Tight, bracing tannins leave a firm, drying finish. Let the tannins unwind for another few years then drink.
