Airavata is Elephant Hill's flagship label, absolutely world class in 2017. A wine of incredible depth and elegance.
Andrew Caillard MW writes "Medium deep crimson. Fresh graphite, dark cherry aromas with ginger pepper notes. Supple and inky smooth in texture with lovely dark cherry, mulberry, elderberry fruits, fine chalky firm graphite textures and long fresh mineral acidity."
Huon Hooke writes "Deep purple/red hue, with a fresh but subtle bouquet of plum and dark berries, some white pepper; very good intensity and drive, penetrating and long. Firm abundant tannins. Oak in balance. A keeper."
RobertParker.com writes "It's plummy and spicy on the nose, with hints of fresh blueberries and violets acting to keep it lively and fresh. Medium to full-bodied, it's rich and velvety on the palate, with terrific depth and texture on the lingering finish."
