Tasting Notes

2018 was a unicorn vintage with nearly perfect conditions for winegrowing from the beginning to the end. This wine displays distinctive Rocks-influenced characteristics. It opens with aromas of black cherry, plum, cured meats, olive, herb and spice. The palate exhibits velvety tannins with rich, round flavors of black and red fruits, umami, cocoa nibs with a long savory finish. Enjoy!

Drink 2021-2031.
