Description

The grapes were carefully de-stemmed and optically sorted to ensure only perfect fruit made it into the wine. A cold soak extracted color and flavor. About 25% of the wine was barrel-fermented to provide a richer, more textured palate. The wine was gently basket-pressed before being racked to French oak barrels for aging.

Aromas of fresh, ripe blueberries, blackberries and boysenberry intertwine with notes of cedar, vanilla and pie crust. This medium-bodied wine is plush with flavors of plums, blueberries and figs upfront, leading to juicy red fruit on the mid-palate. Delicious now, its depth and structure provide long cellaring potential.
