Tasting Notes

Our Hunt & Gather will take you on a journey, where you will discover how the two synergistic components in this wine make it so special. Earthy, savory, and meaty components from the Funk Estate Vineyard Syrah are harmonious with the blackberry, cassis, cocoa and spice flavors contributed by the Cabernet Sauvignon. Barrel-aged and then bottled-aged for two years before release, this complex, full-bodied wine is silky on the palate and will drink well for a decade or more.  Drink 2021-2031.
