Notes from J.K. Carriere:

2019 seems like forever ago and was an absolute keeper. It was a moderate growing year with slightly lower yields, a modicum of rain near the end from which growers needed to stay clean, and a late September into early October harvest. The wines are in-the-pocket, linear on nice acid and very pretty, ripe and balanced without being over the top.

Pure garnet is its core color. The nose smells of cherry buckle, vanilla and tan spice. Bombastic ripe cherry reverberates on the palate and drags grilled meat, tobacco and a hint of wintergreen into its high tone vortex. Prominent acid meets concentration meets a super-finely-sanded-mouthfeel to deliver what can best be described as … Holy shit this is pleasant.
