This wine bursts with aromas of red fruit, soft violet, and fresh lavender oil.
Delicate raspberry and cherry flavors leap from the elegant, velvety palate followed by earthy notes of sage and slate. An intriguing tinge of citrus peel accents the wine’s long, vivid finish.
Grape clusters were hand-picked in the cool of the night, then hand-sorted at the winery. We reserved 1% for whole-cluster fermentation, then gently destemmed the rest using only whole, intact berries for fermentation. After cold-soaking for five to seven days, the grapes entered fermentation for 14 to 19 days, then underwent gentle basket pressing. We used 100% free-run juice to ensure optimum quality.
Aged for nine months in 26% new French oak.
Vibrant ruby in color.
