Good news for the growing legion of admirers of this young winery—production of the Gravura has more than doubled in this vintage. It’s a classy, sophisticated wine with a clear target—the style of wine made in the Graves region of Bordeaux. Done with native ferment (no inoculation), the overall harmony of tart berry/cassis fruit, minerals, bright acidity and bourbon barrel highlights is exceptional.

An entry-level Bordeaux-styled blend is the 2011 Gravura. A blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc that spent 20 months in 50% new French oak, it offers up a supple, pure profile with plenty of black currant, lead pencil, smoke and earthy qualities flowing to a medium to full-bodied, textured and surprisingly concentrated profile on the palate. Already delicious, it will evolve gracefully for over a decade and represents a superb value. - Jeb Dunnuck

Tightly wound aromas of cassis, bitter chocolate, licorice and black peppercorn. Broad, sweet and plush, but with a solid medicinal reserve to the flavors of dark berries, dark chocolate and coffee. This intense, fully ripe blend finishes with sweet, suave yet serious tannins and excellent building length. I'd give it at least a couple years in the cellar before pulling the cork.
