As far as how the wine was made, I was only able to come up with the barrel regimen which was 27 months in 100% new French oak Barrels. I'm not entirely sure if the wine was made from all Estate fruit, but I'm confident that at least most of the harvest was from vineyards located in the Oakville AVA.
On the nose I got beautiful aromas of black plum, dried cherries, sandlewood, kola-nut, anise, and a quite pronounced black licorice aroma.
On the palate the wine is silky smooth with fully integrated tannins, flavors of rich black currant, black cherry, tea leaf, and chocolate all combine with grace and lasting intensity to the finish.
This wine is drinking absolutely brilliantly and could easily hold up for 5-10 years, but I believe it's probably starting to peak in terms of perfect fruit-acid-tannin balance. 93 Points
