Bold yet distinctly elegant, the 2018 Sextant Night Watch is an intricate and seamless composition. The deep crimson complexion and sandalwood, white pepper, and lavender nose offer the initial impressions of this full-bodied gem. Ripe red plum and raspberry on the palate layer with the lively notes of crushed black pepper, spicy sage, and hints of soft supple leather at the core. Polished tannins and refined acidity give body and structure to this harmonious rhythm of flavor. Keen and expressive to start, Night Watch is poised and nuanced through to the finish.
