TASTING NOTES

This wine displays notes of graphite and dark berry fruits, with subtle supportive oak undertones of heady and evocative Asian spices and black olive notes. With a supple tannin frame and a core of minerality, this full-bodied complex wine has a beautiful balance between fruit and oak showcasing a structure that will allow it to age extremely well. Johnnie Calitz, winemaker.

"So great to be able to receive a regular delivery of good wine rather than the usual 12 bottle case sold by most 'wine clubs' "
