Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.

Winemaker's Notes

Unbelievably, almost unbearably pretty; a gaudy overture of fruit yields to a firm, shapely underlay of mineral, which holds hands with an exquisite floweriness, and disappears meaningly.

Critical Acclaim

"A racy style, with a bracing freshness to the slate and sea salt flavors, which feature some peppery accents as well. Ripe peach and smoke mark the rich finish. Drink now through 2016."
