The 2011 Contrarian opens with expressive notes of succulent black fruit and pepper. On the palate, flavors of blackberry and mocha complement silky layers of intricately structured, fine-grained tannins that hold great density and weight. The lush mid-palate leads to a supple, approachable and harmoniously-precise finish. This wine is gratifying now and will age gloriously with time in the cellar.
