2018 Memento Mori
Sourced from Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Beckstoffer Las Piedras, Vine Hill Ranch, Weitz Vineyard, and Oakville Ranch vineyards, the dense purple core is enhanced by the decadently layered fruit of this formidable wine. Ripe blackberries, crushed boysenberries, black plums, spiced mocha and hints of cassis are backed by touches of black tea, wet stone, cigar box and Indian spices that continue to evolve in the glass. A medley of wild blackberries, blueberries and black raspberries frame a sophisticatedly nuanced mid-palate, all wrapped in plush, fine-grained tannins that sit on the palate with ease and are an absolute pleasure to imbibe. Aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak, this spotlights the grace and beauty of the 2018 vintage in a package that’s both ready to drink and built for long-term aging.
