Seriously sophisticated and rich in all the right places, the 2016 Estate Blend is one to enjoy in its youth but also to lay down for quite some time. Aromas of black fruits, roasted meats, dried tobacco and sage give way to a chewy, long mouthfeel, layered with black cherry, black licorice, graphite, vanilla and a dark chocolate texture. The brilliant acidity sends the wine singing high throughout its full and structured palate. Its fresh and refined youthfulness heralds the gifts this wine will deliver with several years in bottle.
