Since their first release of Lexington (2002),they have made it our goal to improve upon the wine each year- in the vineyard, in the winery and in presenting the wine to their loyal customers. The nose is gloriously aromatic with cedar, Santa Rosa plum and sweet tobacco notes. Sweet, mouth-filling tannins, balancing acidity and subtle oak highlight the palate and frame the fruit and spice notes. A suave, dense and utterly thrilling Lexington. This is a classic mountain wine sourced from meticulously farmed sites.
For consumption today it is highly recommend you decant this wine for an hour or so to allow this youngster some time to open up. With some coaxing, pronounced notes of cassis, cigar box and clove begin to emerge, really hinting at the complexity to come with some bottle age.
Drink now and over the next 10-15 years.
