Tasting Notes
Savory aromas of smoked paprika, vanilla root beer and cloved tobacco accent ripe but restrained notes of caramelized plum and dark cherry. The focused palate is layered and concentrated, striking a balance between muscular tannin and a finely edged acidity. Deep mineral complexities frame fruity flavors of spiced blueberry, baked boysenberry, grilled red pepper and traces of Early Grey tea for the grand finale.
Winemaker Notes
Picked throughout September and October, the grapes were fermented into 5-ton open top fermenters and pumped over multiple times per day to achieve maximum extraction. Aged for 22 months in French oak and American oak.
