Barrel Aging: 12 months in 33% new oak – 50/50 French/American

Tasting Notes: Inky garnet core and translucent ruby rim are brilliant, vibrant, and crystal clear. Nose delights with unmistakable Brown Estate notes of Asian apple and exotic spice that give way to gardenia, hibiscus, Moroccan rose, and effervescent citrus, interwoven with hints of eucalyptus and subtle cedar. Deeper aromas of juicy pomegranate, grenadine, macerated ripe cherries, and spun brown sugar commingle with dusty cocoa, cigar box, amber, graphite, and toasted brioche. Silky texture is intense and rich on the palate with magnificent depth, concentration, and extraction. This is a superbly bright and vivacious wine with invigorating grip. Drink now through 2022.
