A wonderfully complex wine crafted from our Funk Estate Vineyard. Hunt connotes the savory, seared meat, herb, and earth characteristics delivered by the Syrah grown in the cobbles of the Rocks District. Gather connotes the wild black cherry, brambly blackberry, blackcap raspberries, dark chocolate, cedar, and baking spice flavors provided by the Cabernet Sauvignon. These two components complement each other in a hedonistic way, like a blackberry, red wine demi-glace over a seared bison loin. Delectable and delicious. Enjoy!
