Following nearly two years in French oak, only a selection of “best barrels” made the final cut. Deeply colored with an opaque crimson center, the wine exhibits cool climate juicy acidity and a cornucopia of red berries in the opulent bouquet. Bright and racy with black pepper and spicy aromatics followed by black berry fruits with a touch of wildness from the Syrah. A full bodied wine that is unfined and unfiltered. Drink now through 2018.
