Hamel Family Ranch Sonoma Valley 2018

$160

Dark and a bit reticent, but as this airs in the glass the core of açaí berry, fig and blackberry compote favors opens up, pushed a bit from behind by cast iron and bittersweet chocolate notes. Flashes of violet, anise and licorice snap add fuel to the finish. Tilts to the exotic side, with lots to like. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2032. 550 cases made.
