A serious blend that reminds me of a premium Bordeaux in many aspects. The tannins are grippy and sticky…for a good length of time, showing youth and lots of aging potential. There is a great freshness throughout this wine provided by a vivid acidity and once again supporting the notion of great cellaring potential. The nose offers black fruits, earthiness and loads of Christmas spice right "out of the gate." On the palate there is an avalanche of dark-bitter chocolate, blackberry, raspberry, expresso coffee and also a great deal of black pepper on the finish. The length and the complexity is very impressive suggesting a super-premium offering. The $40 mark can be intimidating sometimes but if you give this wine 2 years (or 5…) in the cellar, I promise you won't regret it. By this point, your 2018 Altitude will show like a $70 wine. 219 cases produced.
