Tasting Notes

The aromas of smoked Bing cherry, strawberry, and tobacco are rich but delicate, and perfectly developed. The palate strikes a delicate balance of intensity and silky elegance, with a softly lingering finish that defies its tannic nature. Notes of raspberry and black currant are underlined by earthier flavors of dried bay leaf, eucalyptus, and oak, which are a product of this varietal’s cool growing location. Balanced and smooth, this wine is a delight to drink now and for the next few years.
