This is a surprisingly ripe Spirithouse wine, considering it is derived from our highest elevation spot in Knudsen Vineyard.
Uber ripe fruit aromas include plum with blackberry concentrate, lovely cedar-bergamot spice, and an interesting sort of ‘bramble' character, with a rich slathering of dark chocolate nib. This is a "Pavlov's Pinot" kind of wine for me.
The flavor is bursting with juiciness with very fine textured tannins. That concentrated blackberry fruit is so rich one could figuratively slice it with a knife. Spices of dark chocolate and cola nut are met with plum sauce fruit in the long finish.
