The Gravelly Meadow is simply outstanding in 2019. It delivers on every level as it begins to seduce with its gorgeous aromatics of fresh crushed blackberries, dark currants and even hints of blueberries laced with fresh florals, spices, herbs, graphite and wet gravel all coming together beautifully in the glass. On the palate this possesses a medium-plus to full body, showing a wonderful combination of finesse and elegance. It continues to impress with its incredible overall concentration and focus, as well as outstanding structure, with beautifully polished tannins and a deep core of remarkably pure dark fruits that resonate through the long, mouth-coating finish. The Gravelly Meadow is already remarkable, however it also displays the character to age for decades to come.
