Wafting from the glass with bold and rich aromas, the 2016 Chapter 9 is ripe with dense, chewy black fruit wrapped in baking spices and resinous flowers. Full-bodied, the wine is rich and luscious on the palate, with a building elegance and complexity followed by a long finish that brings pleasure with power and finesse. This wine will show better after 2022. 480 six-packs were made.
