vivid aromas of rich, ripe blackberry fruit, espresso, lavender and subtle licorice spice.
The mouthfeel is plush with a very firm structure. This versatile wine has supple blueberry and black berry fruit notes accented by dark chocolate and a lingering, smooth finish.
To maintain the unique characteristics of the different lots from varying areas of the vineyard, each is monitored carefully through the vinification process. Extended maceration created larger tannins to enhance the lush mouthfeel of the blend and extracted a maximum of color, aromas and flavors.
The wines were then aged in French oak barrels (25 percent new) for 16 months and underwent malolactic fermentation for further development of texture and mouthfeel.
