Tasting Notes

This year’s Big Sky Cuvee maintains the blend’s reputation for a supple and luscious wine. Cherry and vanilla top notes evolve into aromas of cigar box, sweet herbs, star anise, lavender, and cardamom. Brambly black fruit flavors, a full chocolatey mouthfeel, and silky, well-integrated tannins combine for a long, satisfying finish. Taste for yourself why this is one of our most highly sought-after wines, and, as always, enjoy!
