Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Powerful aromas and intense flavors of cherries, cran/raspberry, tart cherries, hints of anise, vanilla, and notes of black pepper punctate throughout.
Ratings
92 points! Some quite toasty and brazenly spicy oak sits across meaty notes on the nose here with gentle, orange-zest nuances. There’s a very smooth and succulent feel to the palate with a fresh, lithe and crunchy, pomegranate and cherry finish. Drink now. JamesSuckling.com.

Winemaker Notes
The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted in the field, and again on the crush pad. Two-thirds of the clusters were layered into 1-ton fermenters, destemming the remaining fruit on top. The bins were pumped over under the cap once daily during the five-day cold soak. Once fermentation began, the bins were pumped over and punched down twice daily until dry, and pressed. The wine settled overnight and was racked to 20% new French oak barrels to age for 10 months, undergoing full malolactic fermentation.
