Platter * * * * – Keeping the standard, 2012 is mostly cab with merlot & shiraz, also-tasted 2013 merlot-based with the 2 cabs. Ripe, restrained & elegant, with excellent concentration & depth.
An elegant, richly textured cool climate blend from Elgin; ripe fruit, with vanilla and cigar box notes, a sumptuous complexity and fresh acidity. A velvety finish of fruit cake, which lingers on the palate.
