Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Vibrant aromas of dark fruit and black currant with hints of sweet spice and toasty oak. Full-bodied and full of flavor with a round viscous mouthfeel backed with concentrated tannic structure carry through to a smooth finish.

Vineyard Notes
Abundant winter rainfall provided full soil profiles to start the growing season. A uniform and short bloom period coupled with cool growing temperatures through the early part of the season ensured even development with little variation throughout the vineyard blocks. Early summer temperatures were cooler than normal, while the end of summer brought temperatures with consistently warmer daytime and evening temperatures. All these factors culminated in full phenolic ripening, resulting in wines that have beautiful, deep color, balanced tannic structure, and round mouthfeel with soft acidity.
Food Pairing Notes
Roast duck breast, beef tenderloin or short ribs.
