Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This enticing and deeply colored red wine shows a complex nose of baking spice, black olive and graham integrated beautifully with aromas of ripe black fruits. In the mouth the wine is rich and elegant, showing subtle notes of herb and black berry. Integrated tannins enhance the texture and give proportion; the finish is complex, generous, and long. While this wine can be enjoyed now it will benefit greatly from additional cellaring for 10-15+ years from vintage.
Ratings
91+ POINTS- Tanzer (Vinious): Deep ruby-red. Aromas of plum, licorice and brushy peppery herbs show an obvious pyrazine character. Inky, medicinal blueberry, blackberry, cassis, menthol and cocoa powder flavors convey a slightly elevated impression of alcohol and some exotic Taransaud oak notes. The tannins are a bit granular but not hard or dry. 90 POINTS- Wine Enthusiast: How times flies. In the 25th iteration of this wine, aromas of sweet barrel spice, vanilla, the blackest of cherries, herb and scorched earth lead to creamy, well-balanced fruit and barrel flavors, with vanilla extract and cocoa notes on the finish.
Vineyard Notes
Woodward Canyon Estate Vineyard, Champoux Vineyard, Sagemoor Vineyard and Spring Creek Vineyard.
Production Notes
The 2016 vintage was smaller and slightly warmer than 2015, yet at the same time gave impressive quality. Beautifully mature fruit was achieved through rigorous shoot thinning, leaf stripping and green harvesting.
