The grapes are from a low-yielding single vineyard. The wine matures for 12 months in American oak barrels to give a powerful wine with full varietal expression. This is a dark, inky wine, with generous, layered aromas of red fruit and black pepper. In the mouth it is rich, complex and long with soft, round tannins.
