Nosing the glass, one is enticed by the juxtaposition of aromatics such as blackberry, strawberry jam, and quince with those of tobacco, Tellicherry peppercorn and anise. On the palate, cherry compote, and ground dark roast Sumatran coffee merge seamlessly with fig tart and uber ripe Santa Rosa plum. This elegant, yet broad-weighted wine is nicely cinched in by the natural acidity that is a hallmark of this property. The supple, lush tannins provide a length that provides one the time to savor each sip while sharing the wine with convivial compatriots over great meals. This wine should show power well through 2040. This bottling will pair beautifully with this month’s recipe; Rosemary Lamb Chops with Parmesan Polenta.
Always stored on its side in a climate controlled cellar.
