The 2018 Ph.D. is the pinnacle of our reserve wine series. This is a muscular wine with a satisfying backbone that offers a bounty of both fruit and earth driven aromatics. Bursts of black currant and blackberry fruit leap from the glass. Notes of chocolate, graphite, and wild fruit layer themselves together seamlessly. Cocoa and hits of oak grace the palate as tiers of rich, exotic ﬂavors unfold.
