Spice-accented aromas of dark berries, cola and incense, lifted by a smoky mineral quality. Sappy, focused and subtly sweet, offering palate-staining, well-concentrated black raspberry, cherry cola and violet pastille flavors and an exotic touch of Moroccan spices. The floral and smoke notes come back strong on the mineral-driven finish, which clings with excellent tenacity and gentle tannic grip. 93 Points - Josh Raynolds - Vinous

WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES

The 2016 Bishop Creek is a firm and well-built wine, revealing black cherry and dry earth on the nose, along with hints of roasted meat and herbs. Smokey black cherry and plum persist on the palate alongside ripe, pronounced tannin and potpourri spice. The wine is quite dense through the finish, but shows remarkable balance and will mature for 20+ years in bottle.
