A deep purple color leads to surprisingly bright oral aromas of crushed violets and wildflowers. On the palate are intense ripe flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, red current and briar, with subtle notes of toasted bread and cocoa powder. A long, velvety finish.

Pairs well with braised meats, rich sauces and grilled root vegetables. Wild game is also a good partner and cured pork or sausage would match nicely. 

Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
2016 began wet and cool. Bud break came early and crop yields were slightly lower overall, due to spring rains. Moderate, steady summer temperatures meant ripening progressed easily, and a cooler August allowed flavors to develop well.
