Tasting Notes

**Note: from 55 year old vines now that the older vines have been grubbed up**
Discreet wood influence allows the more densely fruited nose to have center stage with its fresh truffle and mineral character though here the dark berry fruit is slightly riper and leads to rich, mouth coating and beautifully textured flavors that possess a certain reserve as well as more of the minerality displayed by the nose, all wrapped in a strikingly long finish. I really like the underlying sense of both tension and vibrancy as this does a slow build from the mid-palate all the way to the finale. Terrific.
