Tasting Notes


Only one barrel was made of the purple/black 2004 The Ox. Sourced from a miniscule yield of 0.5 tons of fruit per acre, this brooding behemoth offers a superb bouquet of mineral/earth notes, pepper, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Loaded on the palate, it is intensely flavored, has great depth and grip, and a 60-second finish. Remarkably, it can be enjoyed now but will still be providing pleasure 15-20 years from now.


Rich, ripe and generous, spicy with pepper and licorice overtones to the dark berry and dried cherry flavors. Finishes with flair. Drink now through 2016.
