Winemaker's Notes:

The wine shows beautiful dark ruby color to the rim. It exhibits an incredible purity of black and blue fruits, speckled with a potpourri of heirloom rose petals, earth and balsa wood. On the palate the wine has massive amounts of sumptuous fruit as if derived from a berry compote reduction, incredible length, cleansing acidity, and an absolutely seamless finish.
My Notes:

About Figgins:

Figgins was born from a vision to transform a phenomenal vineyard site, into a singular, estate grown non-varietal red wine blended from Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Merlot. The goal from the beginning has been to most highly elevate the potential of this special site through viticultural and winemaking wisdom.
