Tasting Notes

Classic Bordeaux notes of currant, black cherry, gun flint and cedar with secondary hints of cola, bell peppers, lavender and fennel. Much more full and rich than last year’s Duke with all the components being made up from fruit harvested from the much acclaimed Margarita Vineyard in the Central Coast.
