Tasting Notes


The color of the wine is dark with more ruby tones than purple. The nose is more old world in style, displaying notes of truffle, forest floor and cedar, but with aeration and warmth there is a definitive black tea and graphite presence. The palate shows a bit more fruit with subtle hints of sour chery, plum and boysenberry. The tannins are quite fine grained and smooth.

The grapes were harvested September 9th and transferred to open top fermentation tanks. Malolactic Fermentation was completed in barrel, after which the wine underwernt 9 months of ageing in Neutral French and American Oak with regular stirring.
