173 cases produced
Aromas of dark cherry and plum rise from the glass, mingling with the subtle scents of lilac and violets. Rich, velvety mouthfeel with flavors of dark cherry and elderberry. Great structure with just a hint of minerality to balance the rich fruit and floral notes.
Grapes were picked before sunrise, hand-sorted and de-stemmed then cold-soaked for five days before going through whole berry fermentation and receiving two punch-downs per day. Fermentation took approximately 12-16 days in an open top five-ton fermentation tank and the wine was then racked to barrels.
30% new French Oak, 30% one-year-old French Oak and 40% older. Wine remained in barrel for ten months with one racking at five months during blending.
