2019 Amlés Reflectionist remains a product of the agricultural utopia that is the rich and fertile soil of the Napa Valley. It is defined by more high-toned aromas of black currant framed subtly with hints of raspberry. While fruit-driven, this is a serious and complex wine with interwoven touches of Thyme and aromatic Summer Savory. This wine has a tension and balance granted by firm acid and rich tannins providing structure and longevity. Perfection now through 2032.
This 2019 was aged in the French tradition for 20 months in 100% new French oak barrels and was bottled in June 2021.
