Bold with a strong personality, this wine exhibits classic varietal balance of savory earthiness and deep fruit flavors. The wine spent 12 days on its skins and fermented completely dry. It spent 10 months in 36.4% New Hungarian before bottling.
Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Classic smokey, peppery tones and blackberries on the nose. The palate is a wonderful medley of dried peppers, Mexican chocolate, and red berries. Carefully balanced acidity and firm but approachable tannins give this wine and age worthy structure.
