Tasting Notes:

Aromas of ripe plums, cherries, and blackberries, balanced with subtle notes of earth and spice. Cellar or decant prior to enjoying, or allow to age and enjoy for your next special occasion. Enjoy with soft cheeses, such as brie or goat. Terrific with lamb, aged beef, rustic stews and mushrooms.

Terroir:

This wine is made from 100% estate-grown fruit. Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s Mountain in the Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA).

Vintage Notes:

2017 was a spectacular vintage with a long, dry growing season with slow ripening and great balanced acidity.

Winemaker's Notes:

This Bordeaux style blend was left on the vine to mature to its peak before it was hand harvested and hand sorted. It underwent a cold maceration for 5 days before fermentation.  Extended skin contact rounds out the palate and integrates the rich tannins.   Finally, it aged in French oak barrels for 9 months prior to bottling for a round and smooth finish.
