2016 SMD Tasting Notes:

The 2016 SMD gives up rich dark fruits mingling with tobacco left, savory meats, toasty oak, floral vanilla, and graphite on the nose. The forward bright fruit on the palate carries a soft sweetness that turns dense with mocha, raspberry, and currant that also give a grip to the supporting structure and vibrant finish.

All of the wines spent 21 months in French oak barrels and were bottled unfiltered. The wines show the best of their vibrancy in the first decade, while being able to age longer, and in the short-term benefit from being decanted to allow them to open up fully.

2017 SMD Tasting Notes:

Filled with floral, candied fruit, baking spices, Morello cherry, leather, and smoked meats, the 2017 SMD brings many unfolding layers to the table. Bright and juicy on the front of the palate, the wine’s dense, bold body with structured tannins reveal complex notes of cedar, black cherry, tobacco leaf, and cassis leading to a vivacious finish.

All of the wines spent 21 months in French oak barrels and were bottled unfiltered. The wines show the best of their vibrancy in the first decade, while being able to age longer, and in the short-term benefit from being decanted to allow them to open up fully.

2018 SMD Tasting Notes:

The 2018 SMD gives up dark, toasty cherry and plum notes followed by mocha, cedar, creosote, saddle leather, a whiff of chocolate cake, and forest floor with some graphite. The bright, juicy blackberries on the palate burst forward with chunky tannins that turn silky, giving structure to a long fruited wine of purity. 

All of the wines spent 19 months in French oak barrels and were bottled unfiltered. The wines show the best of their vibrancy in the first decade, while being able to age longer, and in the short-term benefit from being decanted to allow them to open up fully.
