An OCULUS was first used by the Romans in buildings like the Pantheon - a window in a dome or wall to the outside. At Mission Hill, our oculus provides the only natural light into our underground barrel cellar, blasted out of volcanic rock that is otherwise hidden from the world. Our complex Oculus Bordeaux-style wine is the result of meticulous selection in the vineyard estate with grapes that have been specifically nurtured for this rare wine.

Aging

Harvest

Palate

Intricate layers of raspberry and blackberry, hints of cedar, truffle and chocolate linger in the long finish. Fine, ripe tannins add structure and balance to the lush fruit. If enjoying this wine in its youth, we suggest decanting prior to serving.
