Tasting Notes
The nose is enticing, featuring aromas of mesquite embers, savory spice, fruit leather and butter candy. The palate is full with chewy tannin layered with elements of grilled plum, blackberry balsamic and vanilla root beer. Smoked paprika, wild blueberry and traces of bacon jam contribute to the memorable finish.

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.
