This is an exceptional Graveyard. Subtly complex and detailed from the very first smell, offering blackberries with spice-laced, cedary oak, violets and blueberries. The palate has such composed, rich and concentrated blueberry and blackberry flavors. But the freshness of this 2019 vintage is the thing that really sets it apart. Long, seamless and intense.

A stellar wine boasting an intensity of flavour, palate-staining levels of extract and a forensic precision to the tannins that forces one to swish the wine about the mouth while chewing every ounce of nourishment from it. Subdued at first, before 2019's ripe kit of black cherry melds with lilac florals and a long trail of pepper, Indian spice mix and charcuterie flavours. A venerable wine in the making.
