Notes of cranberry, cherrry & white pepper create layers of complexity in this wine. The aromas are mirrored on the palate and accentuated with flavors of ripe raspberry, vanilla and clove. Powdery tannins provide great texture and body, leading to an elegant, lengthy finish.

The grapes were harvested and sorted in the vineyards with our selective harvester to allow for maximum hangtime and flavor development. The fruit was not crushed in order to preserve as much whole-berry as possible. We fermented the fruit in stainless steel tanks with a combination of pumpovers and rack & returns to control extraction and flavor. After fermentation, the wine was racked to neutral barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine was barrel aged for 20 months.
