#98 - 2021 Top 100 Wine Spectator
A pure expression of our Coombsville Estate vineyard.
This is something, showing focus and purity that highlights the unique character of this appellation. So much blue fruit, lavender, and walnut with some herbal and sweet-tobacco undertones. It’s full-bodied, yet tight and poised. Lovely quality to the tannins. Exceptional. Drink after 2022.
Distinctive, with a well-defined mix of açaí berry, plum and blueberry fruit that has a cool and fresh feel, while racy graphite, dark earth, tobacco and violet accents fill in the background. Structured and energetic through the finish, with the fruit-earth interplay showing nice persistence. Best from 2021 through 2031. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,200 cases made.
