A seriously impressive trio of vineyards -- Shea, Sequitur and Bednarik -- forms this excellent value. Plushly textured , with lovely dark fruits, especially plum and cherries. As Grant says, this is like a chameleon the longer it's open, changig with the landscape. 164 cases produced.
More lush than our 2015 Old Eight Cut, the palate of this wine has more volume and a softer texture but still retains a bright seam of acidity that holds the framework together. Candied cherry, ripe plum, and citrus give way to underlying warm-damp soil, crushed granite, and candle wax. Fine-grained tannins like bittersweet chocolate mix with layers of ripe berry fruit. As is always the goal for our wines, a chameleon layer will rise to and fall from the landscape the longer this bottle is open.
