Winemaker's Notes

15 months in barrel, 8 months bottle age. Produced from ancient vaso trained vineyards up to 110 years old, fermented in stainless steel tanks, and then aged 15 months in French Oak Barrels. This deep purple wines has notes of toasty oak, graphite and balsamic. The flavors are densely fruit with creme de cassis persisting through the lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"(sourced from old bush vines and aged in French oak for 15 months): Bright purple. Sexy, oak-spiced dark berries, cola and vanilla on the perfumed nose. Smoky, pliant and appealingly sweet, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors that become livelier with air. Finishes sweet and seamless, with echoing cola and blue fruit notes. "

Style: Earth & Spicy
Interesting wine. Starts fruity, then astringent, finishes with a hint of vanilla. Spice builds up over the course of a glass. Not like anything else I've tried, and not something I'd drink everyday, but a nice change of pace.
