A red with ripe berry and plum aromas. Dried flowers. Full body, layered and gorgeous fruit. Tight and beautiful. Small production. Generous and opulent yet agile and fresh. Drink or hold.

Bright, saturated ruby. Aromas of black cherry, blackberry, licorice and violet convey more aromatic lift and interest than the Rebón Vineyard bottling. A major step up in energy and definition on the palate too but still with noteworthy thickness of texture to the concentrated, brambly blueberry, cassis and floral flavors. A savory quality contributes juiciness. The firm but suave tannins are easily supported by the wine's strong fruit. Very long on the aftertaste. A beauty.

A big, rich and powerful red that features concentrated blackberry, dark plum and raspberry tart flavors, supported by medium-grained tannins. Nougat and Asian spice notes fill the creamy finish. Drink now through 2021. 270 cases imported.
