Shows the dry, dill and savory herb flavor profile of the year. More solid than exciting, offering little in the way of ripe fruit purity. Drink now. 1,065 cases made.

A dense thicket of dark chocolate is prominent in this wine, alongside black raspberry and blackberry. Dried herb and pencil shavings also make their way through midpalate, atop a soft, approachable texture and full body.
