The little brother bottling to the principal estate cuvée, this has just gotten better over the years, imho. Broken record like, this is a supreme value.
“Brilliant ruby-red. Pungent red berry and garrigue aromas are energized by a spicy suggestion of white pepper. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering subtly sweet cherry, raspberry and blood orange flavors that show very good structure and depth. Closes smooth and gently tannic, displaying impressive length and a late jolt of lavender.” 91 Josh Raynolds
