2014 he-li-an-thus 750mL

$160.00 750mL

A true wine of place, the 2014 is alluring but authoritative.  Scents of small dark cherries, Indian ink and lush florals are penetrating while maintaining a sense of space.  The palate is harmonious and animated; cassis, dark fleshed fruits and accents of sweet tobacco are lifted by a violet top note.  An undertow of svelte, mineral rich tannins build into a fragrant rolling finish.  The vintage is accessible in its youth (with a minimal decant), yet has the substance to go on for decades.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc. 374 cases
