The 2017 The Flight is all about sensuality and nuance, both of which it has in spades. Precise and aromatically expressive with striking finesse, the 2017 is also a rare Flight that is going to drink well right out of the gate. In 2017, the blend has a bit more Merlot than usual because there was less Cabernet to work with as a result of the fires. That, along with a number of heat spikes, yielded an especially open-knit Flight. Rose petal, mint, lavender and spice give the 2017 striking aromatic top notes. Silky, perfumed and light on its feet, the 2017 is invigorating in its freshness, with a pretty, classically austere feel that is such a signature of the year at so many properties.
Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh, vivid finish. Succulent and delicious. Savory. Flavorful and subtle. Drink or hold.
