Aromas of black currant, fresh coffee and pine needles meld together in a rich and pleasing bouquet and flavors of tart cherry, sweet tobacco and cloves flow along the palate in luxurious layers followed by robust tannins. The finish is long and filled with warming spice notes and the perfect pair with a cool evening and a cozy environment.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
2017 started out cool and wet with record heat arriving in late May and then a cool down happening in early June; as a result, bud break started in mid-April. Temperatures fluctuated the rest of the season with a few heat spikes in July which made for an early veraison followed by the warmest August on record. The end result was very high yields of good quality fruit with lower alcohol, nice acid, and abundant tannin.
