Tasting Notes

The hallmark of the 2019 vintage is juicy, succulent fruit with fresh acidity and heady aromatics. This wine reveals all of that and more! The beautiful garnet color in the glass leads to aromas and flavors of juicy red fruit, black raspberries, sweet herbs, roasted red pepper, anise, cedar, and graphite. A supple mouthfeel and velvety tannins provide a perfect framework for this delicious wine. Enjoy!

Drink 2022-2032.
