This new vintage is turning out to be a stunner. Leading with graphite, pencil shavings, tobacco leaf and dark cherry. We started harvest on September 29th with our estate Malbec from Bob Healy Vineyard and ended on October 24th with Petit Verdot from our estate McQueen Vineyard. The 2017 has fine grained mid palate richness with an uber long finish. Across the board, the vintage has an incredible freshness to the wines as well. I would give this wine two more years in the bottle before opening or decant and watch it develop in the glass for an awesome experience. Drink 2022–2042.
Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot
