The 2019 'Space & Time' is drop-dead gorgeous. This brilliant blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot instantly bursts open with profound aromatics of gorgeous ripe black fruits, which are joined together by violets, crushed gravel and dusty loam, tobacco, roasted coffee and traces of sweet oak. On the palate this is full-bodied with a gorgeous rich, velvety texture and outstanding depth. This shows notable power, yet has a sense of elegance, while remaining well- balanced, as it delivers layers of ripe dark fruits, dark chocolate and exotic spice flavors that continue to build on the palate, before heading into the long, voluptuous finish. This is already simply outstanding, yet it also possesses the potential for a multi-decade long drinking window. This is another absolutely thrilling wine from Aaron Pott that is a must have for any collector, flashes of 2009 Cheval Blanc come to mind in this beauty.
