Winemaker's Notes:

In the nose, an effusive fruit profile of blueberry and Santa Rosa plum merges with white peppery varietal spice, violet-like perfumes and smoky oak. On the palate, the tannin and oak-enlarged fruit take on a roasted, meaty viscosity, and the varietal spice, an anise-like flavor, mingles with dense, stony notes of terroir that winemaker Marco describes as "graphite".
