Winemaker Notes

#14 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

The Estate Cuvee sets a classic tone with its passionate garnet hue. The bouquet is an experience of floral expression as well as red cherries and fresh raspberries accompanied by an immense layer of spices ranging from nutmeg to white-pepper on the finish. While approachable now, the acidity within this wine will reward one's cellar for years to come.

Here it is merely a background note accompanied by Asian spices, incense, and assorted black fruits. In the glass it displays unusual richness and concentration for the vintage as well as a fruit-filled, lengthy finish.
