22 months aging in French oak barrels, 60% new
The 2018 growing season kicked off with plentiful winter rainfall to replenish the soils. Steady vine growth and berry development progressed evenly through the summer months. The vintage was cooler than usual; grapes reached peak maturity with balanced fruit flavors and firm tannins.
Aromas of blackberry and mocha on the nose. Concentrated, intense flavors of ripe boysenberry and blackberry with notes of fig fill the palate. Elegant, structured tannins add depth and dimension with a round, rich dark chocolate, dark berry finish.
Enjoy with hearty stews, steaks on the grill, or fire-roasted vegetables.
