Tasting Notes: A voluptuous nose is dominated by black raspberry, black currant, ripe blueberries, black olive, cassis, clove, and white pepper. A raspberry attack leads to a full, juicy mouth of ripe plums and cherries. The structured cocoa tannins give way to a long finish of chocolate-covered strawberries.
Winemaker’s Notes: “Made exclusively of Caldwell Vineyard estate fruit, it’s an engineering feat combining art, science, and a little fifth dimension magic for a heady ride through time and space. Bursting with dark matter tannins and full-throttle fruit flavors, it offers maximum taste velocity balanced by light, ethereal notes indicative of its earthbound Coombsville coordinates. Larger than life, it’s expansive on the palate with cranberry, pomegranate, and blackberry-cinnamon fruit, it’s got plenty of integrated oak tannin, meaty Syrah-inspired spice, and mid-palate weight. You’d have to be a rocket scientist to find a better Napa wine at this price. Small crop as we only made what we harvested before the fires started”
