“This new discovery is dark as night in hue and oh-so distinguished after just a few years of cellar time. Similar to the best 2016 Napa, this behemoth features heavenly layers of black and blue fruits, sweet spice and spring flower aromas and flavors. The mid palate features typical hints of dark chocolate espresso roast and Oakville black olive tapenade. The finish boasts creamy vanilla notes from the French oak barriques, followed by a crescendo of cassis and a raspberry tart. Decanting is recommended prior to 2023 and enjoy with dry aged steam through 2030.” - Porthos Team Tasting Notes (2/12/21)
