sourced from Lewis and Phinny Hill vineyards.
great concentration and purity of fruit, dark and intensely colored. Inviting aromas of violet, fresh blackberry, wild huckleberry, freshly cracked black pepper and cassis carry through on the palate. Savory olive tapenade and toasty barrel spice add complexity. Rich and multi-layered, the wine’s refined tannins and vibrant acidity linger on a long, complex finish. It's big and decadent, but it wears this weight well and comes off as sophisticated and well crafted. Can be cellared for a decade.
whether you love Charles Smith's K Vintners line, Cote Rotie, or Australian Shiraz - this is a true treat. Decant for 90 mins and throw a few steaks on the grill.
