The grip and plumpness in the mid-palate is what sets 2014 Elusive apart. The mid-palate is dense and flavorful, echoing the dark fruit aromas. Black raspberry and plum accented by subtle notes of olive, cedar, and anise lead the rich entry. Elusive exudes the depth of its European counterparts. As the wine further opens up, further notes of graphite, earth, and forest floor tantalize.
