This show stopper launches forth with sumptuous aromas of black cherry, berries, cedar spice and Valrhona chocolate wafting from the glass. Showing superb concentration and purity of majestic fruit, the 2012 Vineyard House is a classic in the making. The palate is commanding, but deftly balanced and focused, featuring lavish amounts of black currant, plum, baking spice and obsession-inducing hints of toasted caramel plus dark chocolate brownies on the extensive finish. This thoroughbred is built to age gracefully over the next decade so enjoy it tonight after decanting an hour.
