A delicate, fruity red with the texture of a fine Burgundy. Medium to light body, super-integrated tannins and a fresh finish. Shows a solid core of dense fruit and tannins but remains refined. Chocolate, spice, nut and berry character. From 80 to 100-year-old ungrafted vines. Better in 2016.

Made from 80- to 100-year-old vines, this compelling, earthy wine initially opens with funky aromas that burn off in the glass to reveal leather, tilled soil, blue flower and ripe berry. The palate delivers black and red cherry accented by white pepper, cinnamon and black pepper. With firm but velvety tannins, give this a few more years to let it fully develop; drink 2016–2026.
