A wonderfully vivid red with complex aromas of rose petal, black currant, blackberry, black pepper and sandalwood. Full-bodied, yet ultra-refined. Silky textured tannins. Gorgeous finish. So much intense fruit with spice, currant and chocolate. A blend of carmenere, cabernet sauvignon, and merlot. All grapes are biodynamically grown. Better in 2019.

Lusty notes of coconut, charcoal, vanilla and herbs grace core blackberry and cassis aromas. This is massive and widespread on the palate, but the key to its success is impeccable balance. Toasty, minty flavors of blackberry and cassis are chocolaty and lightly herbal, while the finish blends lushness, power, heft and smoky, herbal flavors that go on and on. Drink this Carmenère-led blend through 2024.
