Due to a small crop in 2017, Lariveau winemaker Nicholas Dabudyk put all his red grapes (including the crop from his best vineyards) into this one wine, which, as a result, is a complete over-performer. It's so tight and concentrated-without-being-rich that it nails the comparison to Burgundy, perhaps similar to a Beaune Premier Cru of stolid tannin structure. The palate sits perfectly at the full end of medium-bodied. Drink now to 2025. Today's special pre-departure price is $25 in any dozen (or $27 if less than 12 bottles are ordered). Post-arrival price will rise 20% to $30 per bottle.
