Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2015 red blend has aromatics of red fruits like raspberry coulis, strawberry, and cherry. It is complemented with secondary elements of cinnamon, anise, dried herbs and turned earth. The palate is medium bodied with a touch of minerality and a bright, lingering acidity.
Winemaker's Notes
The 2015 blend is derived from a drought year that produced a solid crop due to mild spring conditions. The growing season was ideal for these varietals, allowing us to pick optimally just-ripe fruit. The wine spends 23 months undisturbed in French oak prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulfur added.
