The 2016 "IX Estate" reflects many facets of flavor. Where prior vintages had an imprint of the drought's flavor concentration, the 2016 "IX Estate" expresses the energy and vitality that returned to the vines during the growing season. The wine first offers dark notes of chocolate covered cherries, graphite and incense, but soon unfolds further to reveal bright cooling flavors. Juniper, sage, fresh rosemary and jasmine tea marry with the fruit. The supple fine-grained tannins coat the palate with tremendous finesse, offering textural depth in a multitude of layers. A bright note of acid adds harmony and freshness while flavors expand further creating an exceptionally perfumed finish.

The 2016 IX Proprietary Red Estate is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple, it comes strutting out of the glass with flamboyant Black Forest cake, blueberry compote and plum pudding notions plus hints of spice cake, unsmoked cigars, menthol, licorice and dusty soil and accented by wafts of tar and black tea. The palate is full-bodied yet incredibly poised and vibrant with amazing freshness and very fine-grained, very firm tannins. It possesses the most provocative earthy sparks, providing arresting depth to the very long, beautifully perfumed finish. Stunning.

Aromas of blackberries, black truffles, burnt orange peel, forest floor and blueberries. Decadent. Full to medium body. The tannins are so tight and dense with super fine and caressing texture. An amazing, mesmerizing wine. Drinkable and glorious, but better after 2022. (Nov 2019)

Lush and warm in feel, with gorgeous fig, black currant and dark plum fruit that rolls through in harmonious waves against a backdrop of loam, alder and smoldering cast iron notes. Not shy on power, latent cut and inner freshness, this just needs time to unwind fully. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2038.
