One of only two wines to receive a perfect five star score at the 2010 Palate Press Grand Tasting, this was tight, tart, and very deep. Unsweetened cranberry, cinnamon, smoked meat, and an underlying backbone of minerals were followed by a long finish. The wine was in great balance with acids and tannins in perfectly balanced counter-point, promising years of gentle aging. Drink with your grandchildren.
