2019 Dark Horse
The 2019 is teeming with vibrancy and life. The nose is pleasantly typical GPS, with notes of cocoa nibbles, tobacco leaf, and coffee grind. The palate is a bit dark and stormy, with chewy tannins, blackberry, and faint violet all present. We threw a decent amount of new oak at this wine, which both softened the grit on the tannins and stirred in an additional level of palate complexity. The finish is cola, mouthfeel, and a long dark fruit.
