The deep and meaningful ruby-purple color bodes well for this wonderful wine in a stunning vintage. Ethereal and enchanting, precise and persistent with pastille aromas of crème de cassis, rose oil, and dried violets all waft to the nostrils. Go deeper for cedar, incense, balsam, and wood smoke. Indicative of winemaker Jeremy Weintraub’s penchant for purity, detail, and above all, sense of place, our high-altitude Viking Estate yields wines that fit perfectly into Jeremy’s ethos. This powerful wine delivers the goods with concentrated black currant, cherry-vanilla overtones followed by mountain pass wild herbs, savory spice-cake, licorice, and campfire. A wine of structure and nuance. Enjoy now for the glories that are joyous vibrant fruit flavors or age 5 years for nuance, finesse, and detail. Drink through 2027.
