tasting notes

AVAILABLE TO ALLOCATION LIST SEPTEMBER 1 - 25, 2014, AS INVENTORY ALLOWS. A pretty bouquet of berry compote and black fig leads to inviting notes of vanilla bean, brioche, and warm spices. Hints of rose petals and anise greet the senses as this lush, weighty wine entices the palate. This seamless expression of fruit, spice, and earth is highlighted by the minerality of crushed rocks, reminiscent of the volcanic rock of the Poetry Vineyard. It is the steep, terraced west-facing slopes of the Poetry vineyard that produce a wine of such purity and concentration that intrigues the senses now, yet has the intensity and structure to evolve in the cellar.
