The winemakers used both stainless steel and oak casks for fermentation and the wine was aged in small oak barrels for 14 months to add levels of complexity to the final blend. Cryptic features a spicy frame wrapped by heady aromas and flavors of blackberry jam, fresh red plum, black licorice and mocha. Rich and juicy, with plush tannins, the finish keeps on giving long after the last sip. Cryptic’s subtle toasty notes and ripe fruit flavors pair well with roasted or grilled meats, hearty pasta dishes and wood-fired pizza.
