Intense blueberry, cassis and huckleberry aromas jump out of the glass and are framed by subtle cinnamon notes.
On the palate the wine is silky in texture and then rolls into the varietal "franc" spice which is best described as fresh picked wild currants. The wine then displays it's silky and elegant tannins in the form of bittersweet chocolate, dark roast coffee and black cherry with integrated vanilla.
This is a very special wine with limited production and is from a single vineyard at elevation 1,600 feet within the Sierra Mountains in El Dorado.
26 months of French oak aging.
Has a deep dark plum color showcasing the intense color capacity from grapes of low yielding vines.
