This fine California wine seduces with its balance as well as its spicy (black pepper) and fruity (blackberry and blueberry) framework. Silky, opulent tannins harmoniously weave into a lingering finish. Rated by winemaker Justin Smith as one of the top three vintages since the creation of this wine, 2019 resonates with the tannic finesse of 2017, the intensity of 2011 and 2007, and the aromatic richness of 2015.
