apparition bottle





The 2018 Apparition is brightly pitched with a bouquet of black cherry, worn leather, sage, nutmeg and cranberry. The incredibly complex palate brings flavors of red currant, violet, thyme and just a hint of graphite. The dense midpalate evolves into a deeply structured finish that flaunts its vibrant acidity and age worthy tannins.
