2016 (2 bottles)
Dark and Intense. “A classic vintage, the 2016 is just beginning to hint at tertiary aromatics. Forest floor and umami join in with an intense medley of blackberry, star anise and raw leather. The long, cool 2016 growing season shows in the dense, dark palate and ethereal minerality. This wine continues to impress with age and it is exciting to watch it evolve over time.” Todd Kohn, Winemaker
2017 (1 bottle)
Red Fruits and Richness. “Velvety tannins and notes of cherry, blueberry and strawberry jam hint at the warmer 2017 vintage. Elements of rich chocolate and a touch of orange zest join in on the palate. For all the opulence in this wine, there is levity on the finish that brings balance and elegance. The 2017 is in a lovely stage for enjoyment.” Todd Kohn, Winemaker
2018 (1 bottle)
Bright and floral. “Fresh and visceral, the 2018 remains a lively wine. Aromas of bright red fruits, lavender and violets abound, with pomegranate and ripe cranberry exploding on the palate. The juiciness is seductive and carries the mid-palate through to the lengthy finish. This wine should be decanted for immediate enjoyment.” Todd Kohn, Winemaker
2019 (2 bottles)
Savory and Serious. “Vibrant notes of marionberry and blood orange blend with subtle aromas of baking spice and fresh gougère as perfumed rose petal rises from the glass. The palate is concentrated and expansive, with supple tannin, dark fruits and decadent mocha notes persisting on the finish. A youthful wine, decanting will aid in opening the aromatics, and few more years in bottle will not disappoint.” Todd Kohn, Winemaker
