4 Day Cold Soak, 14 Day Primary Fermentation, 13 Day Extended Maceration, ML in Barrels
Wine & Spirits
Aromas of dark chocolate, blackberries, and cassis. Flavors of wild berries, sweet oak, and black pepper. Full bodied profile, jammy, with balanced tannins, a complex palate and broad mouthfeel with a strong finish. Quite approachable but has the acidity and tannins to age nicely.
Silver Medal - 2017 San Francisco International Wine Competition
2013 was one of the best vintages California has ever seen! Warm days and cool nights yielded wine with ripe flavors, ample structure, and vibrant acidity.
