Dark chocolate and sweet cherry pie greet the nose. On the palate, this wine begins lush and bright, with notes of strawberry and graham cracker crust. There’s a noticeable backbone of tobacco leaf which persists all the way to the finish, where some dark chocolate notes come to the fore. With fine tannins and juicy acidity, this wine covers all corners of the palate and is easy to savor.

Vintage Notes

An exceptionally wet winter led to a mild spring, resulting in ideal cluster set. Adequate soil moisture levels gave the vines much-needed resilience to handle several heat waves during the ripening stretch which led to an early harvest.

Winemaker Notes

We harvested the fruit during optimal ripeness in September and October. Fermentation took place at a high temperature to ensure maximum extraction before the wine was racked to 30 percent new French oak barrels. The wine was aged for 18 months prior to bottling.
