Each year, our goal for Southing is to create the ideal
marriage of complexity and elegance. The seductive nose of the 2008 Southing exhibits clove, dusty blueberry, cola, violets and hint of pineapple guava. The voluptuous mouthfeel and fine tannins are balanced
by our estate vineyard's characteristic cool climate acidity.
"This full-bodied red combines richness with depth and subtlety, delivering complex, expansive flavors of spicy earth, cedar, blueberry and dark berry. Drink now through 2018. 5,000 cases made."
"Deep ruby red. Red and dark berry preserve aromas are complemented by notes of rooty sassafras, vanilla and smoky Indian spices. Sweet raspberry and boysenberry flavors stain the palate and pick up a spicy quality with air, along with a note of candied rose. In a weighty style but not lacking for energy or freshness, with strong finishing thrust and a persistent note of candied flowers."
