Restrained upon the first pour, a minute’s rest in the glass is needed to fully appreciate the bouquet of dried blueberries, plums, and baking spice. Full bodied with chewy tannins and pleasant acidity round out the mid palate, along with dark fruits, blackberry, and mocha riding out the medium silky finish.
Aged 14 months in 57.9.0% New Oak Barrels, 42.1% Neutral Barrels (2-5 years old). 73.7% French Oak, 26.3% American Oak.
The 19 most expressive barrels are selected from the vintage to showcase the unique growing conditions of our gravelbar soil. This age-worthy wine then spends more time in French oak barrels, creating a bigger, bolder profile with deep coffee and earthy notes and a longer finish. This wine is made for the long haul and will continue to improve after a few years in the cellar.
