Swipe for additional information

Sourced from Bosché, Sycamore, and Red Barn Ranch, this wine displays all the classic notes of the Rutherford AVA. The aromatics conjure up notions of dark chocolate, black cherry, fresh cedar, and graphite. The palate is rich and complexly layered with flavors of espresso, plum pie, blackberry and forest floor. The tannins are reminiscent of Rutherford dust; structured, dusty and well integrated, making this wine lovely now with the ability to cellar well for decades.

"The blueberry, walnut, shiitake mushroom and stone aromas are impressive. Full body, chewy tannins and a solid core of fruit. Needs two or three years to resolve the tannins but excellent. Try in 2018."
