The grapes are partially de-stemmed (usually about 60%). The vines at this estate average over 60 years of age.

Review:
“Ripe blackberry, cherry and potpourri aromas are sharpened by a peppery nuance. Fleshy, broad and seamless in texture, offering juicy dark fruit flavors and a hint of candied flowers. Shows impressive depth, breadth and power on the finish, which carries floral tinges and a hint of peppery spice.”
