San Francisco Wine Panel Score 98+ Points
Showcasing textbook Pisoni “muscle”, this wine unfolds powerful aromas centered on black raspberry, dark cherry, black fig, black peppercorn, roasted game, mocha, toasted rosemary, dried laurel and oolong tea. It is every bit as flavorful and complex on the palate as expected and the flavors come along with substantial tannins and tongue-coating body. The finish is lingering and never less than weighty. Build for service with grand roasts and rich stews, it is likely to need several more years to show everything that it promises. 660 Cases produced.
