 Reflective of the maturing of the vines as they increase in age, the 2015 Encosta is exceptionally complex. The wine evolves rapidly in the glass, opening with chocolate- covered cherry, violet and spun-sugar. Warmer notes of sweet oak, caramel, potting soil and crushed rocks emerge with time. In the mouth it is full and energetic; heavier qualities of blackberry preserve, black cherry, ripe pomegranate and five-spice are counter-posed with vibrant acidity, creating a fantastic tension and length all the way through the finish, resolving in more graphite-mineral notes.

 Wonderfully fresh and superbly balanced, this wine is a clear and resonant reflection of an ideal growing season. Precise expressions of blueberries, warm strawberry preserves, crème de cassis, and violets are built on deeper layers of graphite, tilled earth, menthol, and button mushroom. These aromas explode from the glass, evolving so quickly it is hard to keep up. Intense flavors of black cherries, cocoa nibs, and berry compote race across the palate with a laser-like focus. They are supported by structured, but well-integrated, tannins that are impeccably balanced. Arching upwards in the mouth, this wine is 3-dimensional; the exceptional purity carries through a miles-long finish without even a moment’s deviation. This is truly classic wine of immense approachability, but will also reward for decades to come.

 The 2016 Encosta launches with an intense nose of black cherries, Framboise liqueur, and cherry blossoms. The aromatics continue to elevate with fragrant notes of strawberry preserves, violet crumble, orange zest and forest floor. Persistent and exuberant, the silky texture glides across the palate while the mouth-watering acidity builds and carries the brightness and elegance through the lengthy, flourishing finish. Remarkably integrated, the tannins are in attendance without being assertive. Reflective of the vineyard and resplendent growing season, this is a highly finessed wine that will continue to reveal itself with age.

 The 2016 Gandona Estate is aromatic and expressive with ripe blueberries, blackberry compote, violets, and cocoa nib taking center stage, underlain by notes of sweet earth, crushed rocks, and cigar box. With a dense and concentrated structure, it makes an impressive entrance, driving straight to the top with a pulsating acidity that elevates the fruit and holds its position front and center. Polished tannins build and round with time. The 2016 Gandona exudes power and finesse while still being light on its feet. The lengthy, mineral finish is a grand finale that is deserving of a standing ovation.
