Ross Voss of Wine Enthusiast  describes this as a ‘medium sweet, rich wine with a smooth structure and opulent texture. Lychees and yellow fruits are cut with lime acidity to balance  ripeness and freshness. It’s a wine to age, drink from 2018.’  Wow..this must be a BIG wine… it is already 3 years old and still will benefit from 2 more years aging.  I can’t wait to try this one in a couple of years!

This score is from the Monterey International Wine Competition. Several reviews indicate this wine ‘drinks way above its price category.’ Tasting notes say it brings blackberry, dried herbs, granite minerality and toasty oak spice perfectly integrated. Suggestion is to either give it a long decant or better yet cellar another couple of years.
