Using fruit from three of our own estate blocks, alluring and beautifully complex aromas of cherries, berries, rose petals and a hint of fresh pine needles are highlighted by savory fall spices. On the palate, bursts of juicy berry flavors coat the mouth and are quickly followed by notes of tobacco and earth. The texture is silky, supple and round, but refreshing acidity and soft tannins lift the palate through to a well balanced, berry-filled finish.
