The 2013 Estate Cuvée is dark, powerful and intense. Over the last few years the tannins have begun to soften. Black cherry, smoke, licorice and dark spices emerge nicely here. Powerful and brooding in style, the 2013 is showing better today than I would have thought. Creamy, exquisite and vivid in the glass, the Estate Cuvée is the one 2013 here that can be enjoyed now, although it will of course be better with more time in bottle. It is also the most subtle and gracious wine in the range.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028
