Available for:

The 2016 has a mammoth bouquet of creme de cassis, espresso, camphor, crushed violets, toasty oak, & graphite. Full-bodied, concentrated, & backward on the palate, it nevertheless has perfectly integrated acidity & building tannins.

This wine conveys density but its richness is sublimated by the complex structure and beautiful ripe fruit. Its power comes from the structure as much as the fruit, promising a wine with an immensely long life ahead of it. Drink from 2025.

Offers exotic, cashmere-textured, mocha-infused blackberry, cassis and plum puree flavors, with smoldering incense and warm fruitcake notes and a swath of plush yet serious grip too boot, showing ample depth and breath. As distinctive a Bordeaux as there is these days. Best from 2025 through 2040. 7,500 cases made.
