Our captivating 2016 Poetry is an ode to symmetry and precision. This is the highest expression of our Stags Leap District estate vineyard and all of its irresistible components are well apportioned and fabulously integrated even at such at young age. Dense and brooding on opening, with time liquefied rocks, warm plum, black licorice, bay leaf, and sage soar from the first glass. Equal parts black current and summer fig flavors coalesce on the expansive entry, while smoked cardamom and lavender aromas saturate the olfactory in a glorious cornucopia of ambrosial harmony. The voluptuous palate finishes with a wave of ultrafine tannins that unites for a seamless finale of gorgeous violet perfume.
