Aromas of melted
chocolate, licorice, and garden roses, with hints of fire roasted
meats, crushed rocks, and savory brown butter.


This wine
wows the palate, wasting no time as flavors come through fast,
focused and silky. A plush wave of velvety mouth-coating
tannins frames the black fruits, cocoa, tar, tobacco, caramel,
and butterscotch. Each successively decadent note circling
and swirling in harmony. Drink now or cellar through 2035.

Growing Conditions

Arthur Spencer and his family farm this vineyard 100% organically. The result is stunning Bordeaux fruit that draws all its cues from superior soils and microclimates. Arthur sets the bar high and our goal is to reveal this exquisite terroir in every bottling.

A rich, wild and densely layered wine that
seems to evolve endlessly in the glass.

GROWER: Arthur Spencer for his family’s Temple Family Vineyards


Fermentation: temp controlled stainless steel tanks with a small
