About This Item

 

Tasting Notes:
This wine is a beautiful mulberry jam color with a faint amethyst tinge.  The bouquet is rich and captivating with notes of cherry cordial, tobacco, and green olive.  The oak provides a subtle counterpoint of molasses and baking spice to the ripe currant and raspberry on the palate.  The tannins delicately build into a crescendo of black pepper, cedar, and mulled spices that fades into a pleasant, prolonged finish.
 
Processing:                
These grapes were hand picked and delivered in half ton macro bins and were gently destemmed to minimize fruit damage. The fermentation was started with a proprietary yeast blend.   After aging for 18 months in a blend of new and 2 vintage old french oak barrels, the wine was bottled. 75 Cases produced.
