Interestingly a blend of two vintages, 2012 and 2011, the two coolest on record. In contrast to some of its bruising Napa counterparts, this shows polished vanilla and cassis notes on the nose with a truffley undertone. The elegant fruit is shot through with a refreshing streak of acidity for an elegantly restrained, almost Bordelais style.
