It’s another deep purple colored wine that has terrific purity in its black and blue fruits, ground pepper, olive and graphite aromas and flavors. Deep, rich and full-bodied, with beautiful polish to its tannin, this beauty will benefit from short-term cellaring and have 15-20 years of overall longevity.

It's full-bodied and plush, with a substantial 40% of new barrels, but it's balanced by 30% of the wine being aged in concrete, giving it richness without being overwhelmingly oaky. The bright, fresh finish seems to guarantee at least 5-8 years of longevity.- JC

Made from 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache sourced from vines averaging over 50 years old, it's rich and concentrated but maintains freshness and balance. Enjoy now–2028. ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA

This provides a lush and velvety feel to the flavors of plum sauce and blackberry puree, while hits of graphite and black tea underscore the finish. Drink now through 2021. 7,000 cases made, 350 cases imported. — JM
