TASTING NOTES:

The 2008 VELLUM opens up with heady aromas of raw cocoa, warm forest floor and brambly dark fruit. This impact on the nose lingers to a seamless transition in the mouth melding with intense flavors of strong cassis, espresso grounds, graphite and a finish of winter spices. The palate is broad at every point and falls front to back with a signature supple airiness completing in a very long warm finish. (900 cases produced)
