Initially subtle, aromas of wet rock along with native flora and lichen emerge vividly, mingling with airy notes of the forest canopy. Wrapped in extremely fine tannin, the structure of this vintage evokes the image of a cathedral: intricate stone, cool to the touch, draws attention upward to soaring arches filled with light.
The flow over the palate is elevated by this luminous, detailed structure, to where the wine feels almost weightless. As we are finding to be typical of Promontory, a mineral drive sustains and focuses its path into a lasting finish. The 2016 vintage achieves a natural elegance, while its energy and stature promise a long and storied lifetime ahead.
