Aromatic Wine Competition and fruit driven; plum preserves, caramelized blueberry, brushed rosemary and crushed clove greet the nose. The palate is pleasant and plush, offering polished tannin and a soft spoken acidity. Nuanced tokens of baked blackberry and stewed strawberry lead while sweet spearmint and hints of Earl Grey Tea linger.
Picked throughout September, grapes are sorted and destemmed after harvest. The juice and whole berries are moved to stainless steel upright fermenters. The must is pumped over, punched down or otherwise inundated twice a day. After fermentation, it’s pressed, then blended and aged for 16 months primarily in neutral French oak barrels. Once properly blended these traits lead to remarkably balanced wines, with just enough oak to lend structure and softer tannins while allowing the expressive quality of the fruit to remain the focus.
