Tasting Notes

The aromas of smoked Bing cherry, fresh plum, and tobacco are rich but delicate, and perfectly developed. The palate strikes a fine 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, vanilla, and cedar, which are a product of this varietal’s cool growing location. Perfectly balanced with delicate acidity, this wine is a delight to drink now and for the next few years.
