Bookmark - Grown at 2600 ft above sea level on the Vaca Mountain range.
Vintage release coincides with soft tannins.
After a year in bottle the young wine is still tightly wound and benefits from decanting.
The color is deep red, near black, with a nose rich with spice and dark fruit.
The palate is dense with texture and flavors that slowly unfold: cherry, blackberry, cacao nib, raspberry, brown sugar, lavender, iodine, vanilla and allspice.
Massively structured, this wine will benefit from decanting or additional cellar time to let the wine show its full potential.
