Cask sample 95% new oak Oldest vines, over 80 years old, thirty different grape varieties. The wines from the old vineyards are stored in stainless steel for malolactic fermentation and then racked to new French Allier Oak barriques for 20 months. Smoky, toasty sweet oak with tons of fall spice and nutmeg on the nose. There’s too much oak here today even if one can sense the elegant wine that remains under it all. A little tight and dry on entry then dry on the tight palate with it’s rather refined feel and with lots of dark chocolate and earthy fruit flavors. Finishes with blue fruit and some chewy dried fruit on the finish along with dry dusty tannins. This is simply too oaky today. We’ll have to revist this as a finished wine to see what happens to all the oak here. 85-88pts
