The 2017 Incantation is glass staining opaque, offering savory elements of olive tapenade, smoked meats, blueberry, and tar on the nose. Expressive plum, orange peel, and mocha intermingle on the palate that dances towards the rich and opulent midpalate. The finish is endowed with chewy tannins that beg for your favorite steak and lingers for nearly a minute to come.
