Decanter

This 9.7ha vineyard, founded by winemaker Mike Etzel and his brother-in-law (2020 Decanter Hall of Fame Award winner) Robert Parker, was first planted in 1986. Fermented in wood, steel and amphora and aged in 45% new French casks for 11 months. It has elegant, fresh ripe cherry and plum, Asian spices and pretty floral notes. There's density, length and a firm tannic structure, with no heaviness or astringency.

Vinous

Deep, glistening red. Powerful, smoke- and spice-accented black raspberry, cherry and floral scents are complicated by subtle cola and vanilla notes. Appealingly sweet and expansive on the palate, offering intense red and dark berry, cola and spicecake flavors that pick up a hint of cocoa on the back half. Rounded, well-knit tannins frame a smooth, impressively persistent finish that leaves behind red berry liqueur and mocha notes.

Vinous

Glistening ruby. Vibrant, mineral- and spice-accented black raspberry, kirsch and boysenberry aromas are complemented by a bright floral nuance and an exotic blood orange note. Juicy and sharply focused on the palate, offering intense red and blue fruit, candied lavender and spicecake flavors that show fine definition and back-end lift. The floral note repeats strongly on the impressively long, penetrating finish, which is framed by polished, well-knit tannins.
