Availability: Private wine stores like Everything Wine
Cost: $49.99 + taxes
Alcohol: 14.5%
Date Tasted: April 16th, 2016

Tasting Notes: A blend of Bordeaux varieties sourced from multiple Sonoma County vineyards all with one thing in common: rocky, gravely soils. Intense and refined on the nose with rabbit-hole depth; cassis purée, ripe blueberries, vanilla extract, chocolate covered coffee beans and light, rocky mineral aromas.

The palate continues the refined complexity theme with concentrated, sweet blue fruit and moody, dark fruit flavours supported by effortless, fine tannins and mouth-watering, fresh berry acidity. The finish is epic with lingering vanilla, cassis, cooking spice and light minerals. This wine sits beautifully in the mouth and should be appreciated on its own or with an after-dinner plate of fine, dark chocolates. Drink 2017-2023
