Our first 100% Estate Hunt & Gather! We have been patiently waiting to craft this Hunt & Gather red wine using fruit exclusively from our Funk Estate Vineyard. The funky, savory, and meaty components from the Funk Estate Vineyard Syrah meld beautifully with the cherry, blackberry, plum, dark chocolate, anise, and spice flavors contributed by the Funk Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. The structure and nuance of this wine show tremendous potential. Give this beauty some time in the cellar and reap the rewards. Enjoy!
