Deep ruby. Black and blue fruit preserves, olive and woodsmoke on the deeply perfumed nose. Stains the palate with blackberry, cherry liqueur and vanilla flavors that are enlivened by juicy acidity and a jolt of smoky minerals. The mineral quality adds lift and bite to the broad, dark-fruit-dominated finish, which clings with superb energy, smooth, slow-building tannins and impressive persistence. (JR)
The Bordeaux blend of the estate is the 2014 Mother of Exiles and it checks in as 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Petit Verdot and 2% Petit Verdot Merlot. It offers terrific notes of crème de cassis, spiced plums, crushed violets and graphite in a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, tight and focused style. Like all these latest 2014s, it bucks the vintage profile and is going to benefit from cellaring. 94+
