From esteemed winemaker, Tim Milos comes a wine of velvety sensuous darkness. The aromas are of ripe black fruit and sweet spices. The palate unfolds in sumptuous layers of velvety chocolate, black raspberry preserves, and dark chocolate ganache, creamy, rich, fruit sweet but not sugary (yes, I’m also describing a semisweet chocolate gateau because that’s what it tastes like in the best way). It continues to develop with brambly blackberry flavors wrapped in cocoa laced with nutmeg, anise, and clove. The palate is hugely dense and smooth, but the abundant mountain tannins are sweet and smooth. Glorious now, our wines have yet to fade in the 15 years of crafting them. This should drink beautifully over the next decade or longer.
