Deep crimson in color with lavish aromas of black currant, mocha, and savory herbs with trailing notes of tobacco and vanilla. Full and well rounded with soft edges and a lively dose of bright cherry fruit that unfolds into a smooth finish. Buy one to enjoy now and another to cellar away for a decade or more...if you can resist the temptation to open it sooner.
This dense, garnet-red wine gives way to rich aromas of black cherry and sweet spice. Each sip rewards you with a mouthful of velvety dark fruit and those signature Yountville tannins, topped off with a hint of cracked black pepper and a pleasantly lingering finish. Treat yourself to a few bottles now, and then set some aside for a few years...it will be worth the wait.
